Margarita with a Straw
CAST: Kalki Koechlin, Revathy, Sayani Gupta DIRECTOR: Shonali Bose, Nilesh Maniyar TUESDAY FILM SERIES
Laila is a young romantic, a secret rebel in a wheelchair. Undeterred by cerebral palsy, she embarks on a journey of sexual discovery. Her exhilarating adventures cause a rift both within herself and with those she is closest to. Ultimately, it is in the intensity of these bonds that she finds the strength to be truly herself.
Director Bose handles the material with a light, elegant touch. It helps that the cast, especially the remarkable Koechlin who gives a bravura performance in both physical and emotional terms, can carry it all off.Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
