Unfocused and easily forgettable, this drama shows that even a likable actress can't carry a movie that undervalues its characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/5

Trishna is an admirable effort, but it's too detached and disinterested in the viewer to make an impact. This is a tough film to get through, and even if one makes it to the end, there's little reward to be found.

An intriguing addition to the work of an erratic but always interesting filmmaker.

August 6, 2012
Things start off promising, but, by the time the final reel rolls, Winterbottom's too-detached style seems to be willfully wallowing in oversimplified misery.

August 3, 2012
Trishna engages the potent collisions of the rural and the urban, the poor and the rich, and considers how these interactions unfold in a romance and how they might also destroy it.

Winterbottom's socially conscious, contemporary adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles is first-rate.

Freida Pinto is a goddess among us, but this set-in-India version of Tess of the D'Ubervilles is just so-so.

...Winterbottom's most gorgeous film to date.

July 26, 2012
While the film never delves deep enough into its characters' emotions to be truly spellbinding, it's well worth seeing.

Freida Pinto is so incredibly pretty in "Trishna." And so incredibly boring.

Winterbottom has complete control of the film's look and feel, but the story seems to run away from him.

July 25, 2012
It's an ambitious and evocative effort derailed in part by a passive lead performance that keeps the material at an emotional distance.
July 20, 2012
Pinto's piercingly expressive eyes tell the whole story--the excitement of not only first love but the new, and that innocent hope and romantic idealism slowly, inevitably bled dry.

July 20, 2012
A rare unsatisfying swerve from an otherwise reliably provocative career.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 19, 2012
Rather than a strong script, Winterbottom relies on a hyperactive camera, as if he were trying to recreate an updated dramatic classic by way of a music video.

July 19, 2012
"Trishna" works largely on the strength of Winterbottom's clever updates of a century-old story.

July 19, 2012
A loose but nonetheless pretty faithful recasting of Hardy's penultimate tragedy, Tess of the d'Urbervilles.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 19, 2012
A nice inversion of the star-cross'd lovers trope.

Winterbottom gives a bright panorama of Indian life, from the agrarian countryside to the tumult of Jaipur and the sophistication of Mumbai.
