A young Bangladeshi woman, Nazneen (Tannishtha Chatterjee), leaves behind her small village for East London and an arranged marriage to a man who’s twice her age (Satish Kaushik), only to find herself pining for her native soil and falling in love with somebody else. But director Sarah Gavron, using an adapted screenplay from Monica Ali’s 2003 best-selling novel, says the tale isn’t as sad as it sounds. ”This is a hopeful story of integration of a woman who finds home in a place that for so long has been alien.” (June 20)
