From the director of the much beloved Bend It Like Beckham comes the immensely likeable new film, Bride and Prejudice. This is Jane Austen?s classic story set in a colorful Indian city and filmed in the style of a big Bollywood musical (a mix of Hollywood and Bombay). Starring the gorgeous Indian movie star Aishwarya Rai, this gusto-filled romp humorously targets prejudice between the East and West, first and third worlds, men, women, children and parents. The up-tempo, traditional Indian music, Bollywood song and dance plus eye-popping costumes add to the delight.
Two thumbs up. I love this movie! - Roger Ebert, Ebert and Reoper
