Film Alert: “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”

In mid-June, the Hippodrome Cinema will show “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” taken from the novel of the same name by Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid.

It tells the story of the impact that the 9/11 attacks had on a then-successful young Pakistani working on Wall Street and how he responds to both changes in American society and U.S. foreign policy in the years following. Check the Hippodrome’s website or call 352-375-4477 for film dates and times.

And congrats to the Hippodrome for 40 (!) years of bringing cultural enrichment to our community. They’ve come a long way from an old Seven-Eleven off Hawthorne Road.
