From the wonderful filmmaker Deepa Mehta, who brought us the impressive trilogy Fire (96), Earth (98) and Water (2005) (which always top my list of recommendations), the irreverent comedy Bollywood Hollywood (2002) and the deeply disturbing Heaven on Earth (2008), here comes her maybe greatest venture Midnight’s Children, based on the prize-winning novel by Salman Rushdie.
Music by the multi-talented composer and songwriter Nitin Sawhney, whose music never ceases to inspire.
Midnight’s Children premiered in September 2012 at the Telluride Film Festival and was presented shortly afterwards at the Toronto Film Festival. Hopefully we’ll get to see it soon here in the US. What takes it so long!?
