From the director of Monsoon Wedding

Passion. Tradition. Prejudice. Put it together, and you've got the recipe for a sexy irreverent romance. Starring Academy Award-winner (Best Actor in a Leading Role-Training Day, 2002 and Best Actor in a Supporting Role-Glory, 1990) Denzel Washington as Demetrius, a Southern businessman who falls in love with an Indian immigrant, Mississippi Masala is an exotic and erotic interracial love story.

Sarita Choudhury co-stars as Mina, whose Indian family was expelled from Uganda under the reign of dictator Idi Amin. Like the colorful Indian dish "masala", Mina is a hot, spicy mix of cultures. But when she and Demetrius fall in love, nothing in her past prepares them for the family outrage they face. A funny, fascinating glimpse into two tightly-knit communities, and a moving story that crosses the color barrier, Mississippi Masala is "wonderfully tender wryly funny...vibrantly sexy." (Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News).
