Michael Winterbottom (The Claim, 24 Hour Party People, The Trip) sets Thomas Hardy's classic tragedy Tess of the d'Urbervilles in modern-day India. Working at a fancy resort to pay the bills, our poverty-stricken heroine (Freida Pinto from Slumdog Millionaire) crosses paths with young Jay (Riz Ahmed, Four Lions), the wealthy son of a property developer. Winterbottom specializes in risky transplantations, but the old-fashioned, overworked melodrama might be too much for some folks. 117 minutes R.
