THE LUNCHBOX

DIRECTOR: Ritesh Batra - INDIA

Ila (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is a lonely Mumbai housewife who yearns to spark the affections of her inattentive husband. She patiently prepares a special lunch for him to enjoy at work, but through a mix-up with the delivery service, the meal ends up at the desk of Saajan (Irrfan Khan), an isolated accountant on the verge of retiring. Thrilled by the great surprise but compelled to acknowledge the mistake, Saajan starts an ongoing exchange of warm letters between the lonely pair, through which they reveal their innermost secrets. On his retirement, Sajaan goes in search of the cook of his dreams. Batra’s oftentimes comedic debut feature is an intimate, heartfelt exploration of the fragility of human connection in which every gesture has meaning and every wonderfully observed image has compassion. (104 mins.)

First feature.

Sponsored by Southpark Seafood Grill.
