Brick Lane

I watched this movie last night and found it quite compelling.

It is the story of a Bengali family living in London and the struggles they face with issues such as arranged marriages and assimilating into a new culture especially as Muslims during the 9/11 period.

The characters are well developed and believable and the story has sufficient energy to keep you watching. The ending is not predictable and leaves you satisfied.

You can’t help but feel for the plight of people cast adrift in a foreign culture whose lives have already been torn apart by tragedy.

A great movie from the ‘alternative’ shelf at the DVD store and well worth the time to watch it

  1. Oh yes … that looks good. I’m sick today and surfing around. But we are seeing this here so much while we work in Austria with people seeking asylum.
