The Reluctant Fundamentalist
Original Name: The Reluctant Fundamentalist
IMDb Rating: 6.6
Release Date: 3 May 2013
The Reluctant Fundamental is a moving, poignant portrait of man betwixt two worlds, both of which demand his allegiance, and a cause thrust upon him in the advent of the unseemly face of American patriotism after 9/11 and the Bush administrations’ disastrous excursions to the Middle East. Riz Ahmed gainly carries his performance with both charm and sizzling charisma; bringing forth a truly multi-layered character who is made more palpable with every word and gesture. One of the most beautifully shot films in a long time. Definitely worth a look for something a bit different. Compelling story with strong acting from all.
