The Wedding Guest
British man Jay (Patel) travels to Pakistan ostensibly to attend a wedding, but his multiple passports and proficiency with weapons suggest that he has something very different in mind. After a daring raid, he spirits away the bride-to-be, Samira (Radhika Apte, Sacred Games, Lust Stories) and flees across the border to India. Winterbottom (The Killer Inside Me, SFF 2010; The Trip, SFF 2011; On the Road, SFF 2017), a prolific director with an astonishing range of films traversing countries and genres, proves himself an expert at thrillers too. He ratchets up the tension as the two characters play a potentially deadly game of deception with each other – and their mutual attraction simmers.
