DVD review: The Reluctant Fundamentalist (Kaleidoscope)

In Mira Nair’s thoughtful drama, Riz Ahmed, above right, plays Changez, the well-born son of a Punjab poet who comes to America and is “catapulted into privilege” – an Ivy League education, then a prestigious job on Wall Street.

DVD review: Thérèse Desqueyroux

Audrey Tautou stars as the title character in Claude Miller's adaptation of François Mauriac's novel of bourgeois entrapment. In 1920s Bordeaux, Thérèse is a free-spirited young woman who knows she must marry stolid Bernard (Gilles Lellouche) and thus unite their land-owning families.

Film review: Upstream Colour (12A)
