The Lunchbox

Our next Rialto Recommends is 2013's THE LUNCHBOX from first time director Ritesh Batra. A mistaken delivery in Mumbai's famously efficient lunchbox delivery system (Mumbai's Dabbawallahs) connects a young housewife to a stranger in the dusk of his life. They build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox. Warm, affectionate, and sweet but not cloying, THE LUNCHBOX is a clever crowd-pleaser. The Boston Globe said "A humanist fable from India, the film is actually a romance in the classic tradition, a "Brief Encounter" transposed to the rhythms and flavors of modern-day Mumbai." While the New York Times said "The comedy is more wry than uproarious, the melodrama gently poignant rather than operatic, and the sentimentality just sweet enough to be satisfying rather than bothersome." THE LUNCHBOX is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, Apple, GooglePlay, YouTube and others HERE.
