A Suitable Boy (DVD)
A witty, gorgeously filmed adaptation of Vikram Seth’s acclaimed bestseller. Directed by Mira Nair and filmed entirely on location in India.
It’s 1951, and newly independent India is boldly breaking free of its past.
Lata is a spirited young student. Her mother wants to find her a husband – a suitable boy. As Lata meets potential matches, she’s torn between romance and responsibility.
Meanwhile, her headstrong friend Maan defies his father as he falls in love with a glamorous courtesan. Both are determined to decide their own future. And, in a country that’s coming of age, anything could happen.
Adapted from Vikram Seth’s modern classic by BAFTA and Emmy-winning writer Andrew Davies and directed by Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay, The Namesake, Monsoon Wedding).
