Mira Nair paints a tale of family, heritage and tradition in The Namesake. Not only a colorful story, but a visually colorful and rich film. This is the story of a young man who struggles with his American life and Indian roots. Love, loss and lifestyle are all explored. Touching and real, the power of family and heritage are elements in this modern family drama. A beautiful film I really enjoyed.
