Next screening? “The Warrior Queen of Jhansi”

For those who haven’t been paying attention, Indian films and movies set in India have been showing up on screens nationwide with increasing frequency.

Few have made much of a dent in the US box office, but the Subcontinent Diaspora in North America is large enough to justify the effort.

“The Warrior Queen of Jhansi” is a piece of Indian history about Manu, a woman who resisted the corporate tyranny of the British East India Company, became queen of her state and leader of an army that included women.

Looks fun. 2400 plus screens have this, so Roadside Attractions is gambling that it will have wide appeal. Let’s see if it should.
