Wonderful movie that shows the desperate circumstances faced by women in developing countries. Superb performances by Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed. Based on Tess by Thomas Hardy, this is the story of a poor young woman in Rajasthan who meets a rich man, and experiences total dependency, humiliation and eventual ruin. Compelling stuff, and highly recommended.
