In 2017 IndieWire named this film the best romance of the 21st Century.  Mira Nair’s film of the romantic entanglements during a traditional Punjabi Hindu wedding in Delhi is a brilliantly colored feast for the senses.  It is one of those joyous films that leaps over national boundaries to celebrate universal human nature.   Balancing five love stories, “Monsoon Wedding” won the prestigious Golden Lion as the best film at Venice in 2001 (among many other awards) and is the kind of film where you meet characters you have never been within 10,000 miles of, and feel like you know them at once.
Popcorn with an array of toppings (including Cumin) will be served.
