Mini Review - The Reluctant Fundamentalist

The Reluctant Fundamentalist (out May 23) is the story of a young Pakistani man who was once a gifted, highly-paid consultant in the United States but now finds himself working as a lecture in a small university in Lahore. What happened? Told by way of flashbacks, this film has a great performance from Riz Ahmed but for every great conversation, there's also a not-so-convincing one. Grade: B-.
