The Lunchbox Approaches

The Lunchbox onesheet

Hot off the film’s screenings at Sundance, as the countdown to the U.S. release date (February 28) for Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox intensifies, a wonderfully edited (and subtitled) trailer has been released.

It’s about time!  Prior to this, whenever I tried to tell to friends and acquaintances about it, the only snippets I could find online were below the standard of the film itself.  The cast (Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and crew deserve better.

I’ll refrain from any in-depth commentary on The Lunchbox right now, but suffice to say I agree with all the Oscar outrage of a few months ago.  This should have been India’s entry.

More toward the end of the month, including an interview with Ritesh Batra.
