About Trishna

Transplanting the well-loved tragic romance of Thomas Hardy's classic novel Tess of the D'Urbervilles to India, Michael Winterbottom (A MIGHTY HEART, THE TRIP) trains his masterful lense towards one of the brightest young stars of a generation, Freida Pinto (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE), in TRISHNA. Pinto soars in her most revealing performance yet--the eldest daughter or a poor family in Rajasthan, India. She works in a nearby resort to help pay the bills. Jay (Riz Ahmed, FOUR LIONS) is the wealthy son of a property developer who takes up managing the resort at his father's request. When he meets Trishna at a dance, their fates become intertwined. Jay finds every opportunity to win Trishna's affection and she accepts his efforts with shy curiosity. But when the two move to Mumbai and become a couple, Jay's deep family bond threatens the young lovers' bliss.
