Mira Nair (SALAAM BOMBAY, THE NAMESAKE) explores race and displacement in this classic story of people struggling to find their way home. An Indian family expelled from Idi Amin’s Uganda move to Mississippi, where they start a hotel. Some 17 years later, the dad (played by India’s legendary Roshan Seth) sues Uganda to get his property back, as grown daughter (Sarita Choudhury) falls in love with a black man (Denzel Washington). A memorable love story with a tale of deep longing. Newly restored. (U.S., 1991, 128m)
