Home Celebrity Mira Nair’s “Reluctant Fundamentalist” to Open Venice Film Festival

The great Mira Nair, one of my favorite people, will open the Venice Film Festival with her new film, “The Reluctant Fundamentalist.” Mira’s great past films include “The Namesake” and “Monsoon Wedding.” The new film stars Kate Hudson, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, Martin Donovan, Riz Ahmed, Om Puri and Shabana Azmi. I’s described as an “international political thriller that follows the story of a young Pakistani man, chasing corporate success on Wall Street, who ultimately finds himself embroiled in a conflict between his American Dream, a hostage crisis, and the enduring call of his family’s homeland.”

The rest of the Venice lineup will be announced on Thursday in between announcements about the Jackson family.
