Are you a fan of contemporary political thrillers? Yes? Well, might I suggest you watch the new trailer for 's The Reluctant Fundamentalist? I did, and now I can't wait for its April 24th release. Check it out below:

To find out what all that was about, how about checking out the official synopsis:

We begin in 2011 in Lahore. At an outdoor café a Pakistani man named Changez () tells Bobby (), an American journalist, about his experiences in the United States. Roll back ten years, and we find a younger Changez fresh from Princeton, seeking fortune and glory on Wall Street. The American Dream seems well within his grasp, complete with a smart and gorgeous artist girlfriend, Erica (). But when the Twin Towers are attacked, a cultural divide slowly begins to crack open between Changez and Erica. Changez's dream soon begins to slip into nightmare: profiled, wrongfully arrested, strip-searched and interrogated, he is transformed from a well-educated, upwardly mobile businessman to a scapegoat and perceived enemy. With time, he begins to hear the call of his own homeland.
