Kiefer Sutherland Doesn’t Ask “WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?!?” In The Reluctant Fundamentalist Trailer

Kiefer Sutherland stars in a new thriller exploring Islamic fundamentalism in the aftermath of 9/11 in typical Hollywood fashion.

Plot Summary: We begin in 2011 in Lahore. At an outdoor café a Pakistani man named Changez tells Bobby, an American journalist, about his experiences in the United States. Roll back ten years, and we find a younger Changez fresh from Princeton, seeking fortune and glory on Wall Street. The American Dream seems well within his grasp, complete with a smart and gorgeous artist girlfriend, Erica. But when the Twin Towers are attacked, a cultural divide slowly begins to crack open between Changez and Erica. Changez’s dream soon begins to slip into nightmare: profiled, wrongfully arrested, strip-searched and interrogated, he is transformed from a well-educated, upwardly mobile businessman to a scapegoat and perceived enemy. With time, he begins to hear the call of his own homeland.
