Bride and Prejudice

[cert 12A, 111 mins]

Director Gurinder Chadha transports the comic tale
of a witty young woman trying to find a suitable
husband to a cross-cultural setting that spans 21st
century India, London and America. I The determined Mrs.
Bakshi sets out to find marriage matches for her four
beautiful daughters. Right away, the smart and
headstrong Lalita announces she will only marry for
love, much to her mother's disapproval. Then Lalita
meets the wealthy American Will Darcy and sparks
immediately fly. Alternately
enchanted by and suspicious of one another, Lalita
and Darcy nearly fall prey to assumptions, gossip
and a comedy of errors
until pride is numbed and
prejudice overcome so that love can triumph.
