Michael Winterbottom‘s Trishna is an adaptation of Thomas Hardy‘s Tess of the D’ubervilles, which is a fairly dark and fatalistic piece. You’d never know that from the generally pleasant, almost festive tone of this trailer. Pic is about an ill-fated romance between Jay (Riz Ahmed), a well-born smoothie, and Trishna (Freida Pinto), who comes from near-poverty. Will Pinto achieve a performance breakthrough of some kind? She could use that.
