“The Namesake”

Directed by Mira Nair

2007

starring Kal Penn, Irrfan Kahn, Tabu

When the the Ganguli family moves from Calcutta to New York, they embark upon a lifelong balancing act to meld into a new world without forgetting the old. Though parents Ashoke and Ashima long for the family and culture that enveloped them in India, they take great pride in the opportunities their sacrifices have afforded their children. Paradoxically, their son Gogol is torn between finding his own unique identity without losing his heritage. Even Gogol’s name represents the family’s journey into the unknown.

  5. Peter,
    Thanks for your question. The Namesake was rained out twice during the season and the opportunity to have the editor of the film for a Q&A presented itself so we felt we could not pass it up. I’m sorry if you were if waiting to see that film. We hope you enjoyed the season.
