As a portrait of a nation amid accelerated and profound change, "Trishna" is a vivid piece of cinema. As a melodrama, it's provocative without being emotionally involving, the central performance more distancing than engaging.
Something in Hardy's tragic inclinations obviously appeals to Winterbottom; this is the third time he's adapted one of the author's novels, with the liberties he takes with the source material increasing each time.
By combining the characters of Lord d'Urberville and Angel Clare into one person -- spoiled rich boy Jay (Riz Ahmed, Four Lions) -- Winterbottom strips the tale of a compelling second act, making things sag terribly in the middle.
