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 thehipp.org/cinema 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.
