Freida Pinto is 'Trishna' in new Michael Winterbottom trailer

Posted on


Likes: Long walks on the beach, Bollywood dancing, handsome upperclassmen.

Dislikes: The caste system, servitude, controlling boyfriends.

That’s the skinny on the heroine of Michael Winterbottom’s India-set Tess of the d’Urbervilles adaptation as told through its new trailer. Immortals‘ Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed (Four Lions) play the class-crossing lovers, and much of the clip focuses on the two leads’ searing chemistry. It takes an ominous turn at the end, of course, and if you’ve read Thomas Hardy’s 1891 novel, I needn’t tell you any more. Simply enjoy the eye candy below.

Trishna will premiere in the U.S. later this month at the Tribeca Film Festival and open in limited release on July 13.
