The Wedding Guest

Official Selection: Toronto Film Festival

Dev Patel continues to demonstrate why he’s one of the best actors working anywhere in Michael Winterbottom’s noir-ish crime thriller that criss-crosses India and Pakistan.

Jay (Patel) is a hired gun of sorts who after a job in Pakistan finds himself in the company of an unwilling bride-to-be (Radhika Apte) who herself is in possession of something of interest to all manner of pursuers and suspicious parties. As their position on the run and on the loose becomes more and more dangerous, their relationship similarly becomes more and more intense and between all the opposing forces – well…something’s just gotta give.

With more than a passing nod to the noir classic Double Indemnity, Winterbottom keeps a firm hand on a sprawling story. Along the way, we’re treated to more seedy hotels, packed trains, desert road trips and exotic locations than you can poke a gun barrel at as Winterbottom pokes his camera into every fascinating nook and cranny these fabulous locations have to offer.
