The Greatest Journeys Are The Ones That Bring You Home.

Based upon the best-selling novel by Jhumpa Lahiri and brought to the screen by acclaimed director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding), this epic family saga "brims with intelligence, compassion, and sensuous delight" (Chicago Tribune). Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle) stars as Gogol Ganguli, a suburban teenager caught between his Indian roots and his American birthright. Gogol and his Indian-born parents must somehow strike a balance between age-old traditions and modern-day sensibilities as they search for a patch of common ground. An inspirational tale about the ties that bind us all, The Namesake is "marvelous, moving... funny and sexy" (Entertainment Weekly).
