Review: The Namesake

A very able cultural light family drama that tells a story of a man from India and his life after moving to the States. You’ll get a bit of insight in their customs and values, but luckily that’s not the main intent of the story. Without the forced perspective so many of these movies have, the cultural and generation gaps take a subtle backseat, and strangely, a single name acts as the strand of the story.
While I’m always extra weary when it comes to foreign movies (in this case, only half of it is), the acting seems to be the strenght of this movie.7+.
