Michael Winterbottom's TRISHNA, a modern retelling of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Ubervilles, stars Frida Pinto as the title character, a young Indian woman who meets Jay (Riz Ahmed) the son of a rich real estate man. He convinces her to come work in a hotel owned by his father, and because her family is in desperate need of money - and he's charming and handsome -- she accepts. While things go well at first, she becomes pregnant and is forced to leave the job. Though she tries to make it on her own as a dancer, Jay eventually returns and attempts to sweep her of her feet again.
