Wide screen (1.85:1).
Years after her Indian family was forced to flee their home in Uganda by the dictatorship of Idi Amin, twenty-something Mina spends her days cleaning rooms in an Indian-run motel in Mississippi. When she falls for the charming Black carpet cleaner Demetrius, their passionate romance challenges the prejudices of both of their families and exposes the rifts between the region's Indian and African American communities. Tackling thorny issues of racism, colorism, culture clash, and displacement with bighearted humor and keen insight, Nair serves up a sweet, sexy, and deeply satisfying celebration of love's power.
Special features: Audio commentary featuring Mira Nair; new conversation between actor Sarita Choudhury and film critic Devika Girish; new interviews with director of photography Ed Lachman, screenwriter Sooni Taraporevala and production designer and photographer Mitch Epstein; an essay by critic Bilal Qureshi.
