This film is one where Sujata becomes 'Sue'
By Frederick Noronha, IANS
Oscar-winning director Roger Christian's venture "American Daylight", that premiered at this year's International Film festival of India (IFFI) here, has been described as a "modern-day thriller set in a globalised world" where outsourcing rules the roost.
The protagonist, Sujata, works in a call centre. After she learns to put on an American accent she is re-christened 'Sue'.
She answers a fateful call from a lonely American millionaire, Lawrence, who is desperate to stop his wife emptying their account. Sue offers Lawrence information on what he can do, going against the rules. Lawrence is captivated by his call centre saviour and sets out to meet her, not realising she lives in another world.
Other premiers coming up at the 35th IFFI are the British production "Things To Do Before You Turn 30" (directed by Simon Shore, a film showing how life is both messy and funny), the US-made "Finding Neverland" (Marc Forester, true story of the struggle of bringing to the stage the play "Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up"), US films "The Forgotten", and the Walt Disney animation "The Incredibles" (Brad Bird).
