Here is the synopsis for “Trishna”:

Based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles,” master filmmaker Michael Winterbottom’s newest film stars Freida Pinto who soars as Trishna in her most revealing performance yet.

Trishna lives with her family in a village in Rajasthan, which is India’s largest state. As the eldest daughter, she works in a nearby resort to help pay the bills. Jay (Riz Ahmed, “Four Lions”) is the wealthy son of a property developer. When he takes up managing a resort at his father’s request, he meets Trishna at a dance and their fates cross.

Jay finds every opportunity to win Trishna’s affection. She accepts his efforts with shy curiosity. But when the two move to Mumbai and become a couple, Jay’s deep family bond threatens the young lovers’ bliss.

Shot with Winterbottom’s agile camera, “Trishna” is a powerful look at the tension between ancient privilege and modern equality, between codes of urban and rural life and ultimately a hymn to the glory and tragedy that comes with beauty in all forms.

    CHICAGO – From villain to anti-hero to homoerotic fan fiction icon, Loki has traveled a long way from the greasy-haired megalomaniac we have come to love. For most of his cinematic character development, Loki has been a foil to Thor’s massive himbo (n.: a very attractive, often beefy male who isn’t the brightest bulb, but is still able to shine because of his good-natured attitude and respect for women. Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
