Viceroy’s House Film

I recently saw a press preview screening of the film Viceroy’s House, an excellent retelling of the story of India’s independence from Britain in 1947.  This dramatic film shows the incredible hardship the two new countries endured as a result of the partitioning of India into two nations:  India and Pakistan.  It’s also a moving  love story, with many dramatic scenes and impressive attention to detail.  The film opens on Sept. 1, and was directed by Gurinder Chadha, whose own family went through this story.  14 million refugees were created by the forming of the two counties, with repercussions that last even today.  A fascinating tale of a remarkable moment in recent history, memorably told.
