Telling the story of a Pakistani immigrant chasing the American Dream, Nair’s timely new film follows the protagonist's mission to climb the corporate ladder on Wall Street while getting swept up in a hostage situation and questioning his loyalties to his home country. Similar to Nair's other films—The Namesake, and the Oscar-nominated Salaam Bombay!— it tackles identity crisis, race, gender and international relations in a way that grabs viewers' attention and resonates with them long after the film has ended. Unlike some directors, Nair is also a passionate public speaker, adept at sharing her insightful views on the world around us from not just behind the scenes, but in the spotlight as well.
