Film Screening: A Suitable Girl

  • The Bertha DocHouse Screen, Curzon Bloomsbury The Brunswick London, WC1N 1AW UK (map)

Dipti, Amrita, and Ritu represent the new India. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values in Mumbai and New Delhi, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not. Yet their lives take a dramatic turn when the pressure to settle down and get married hits. Career aspirations become secondary to the pursuit of a husband, and the women struggle with the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another.

Filmed over four years, A Suitable Girl follows these three young women as they juggle family, career and friends, intimately capturing their thoughts on arranged marriage, and offering a unique perspective into the nuances of this institution.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
