    That Winterbottom has delivered a dud makes Trishna all the more disappointing, a rare unsatisfying swerve from an otherwise reliably provocative career.

    The meat of the film is sadly, a tedious misstep for a director who, even when he's experimented in the past, has generally come up with something more interesting than this. It is, however, still better than "9 Songs"

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Dullsville. Freida Pinto is striking as always, and the cinematography is compelling, but the story line, supposedly based on the Hardy work, is confused and shallow. The movie is just a patchwork of loosely connected 1-minute scenes with little continuity or storytelling. There is minimal character development - something that Ms. Pinto definitely needs because of her withdrawn nature. The players are injected fully formed with no backstory or history to help us appreciate who they are. Even Ms. Pinto's interactions with her family are insipid. We're left to wonder why her character attaches to the male lead, following him from town to town for no apparent reason other than to make a few bucks to send back to her family. The sexual attraction, and ensuing scenes, are contrived and colorless. Ultimately we can't understand her rage leading to the murder she commits, or her subsequent suicide. Full Review »
