Midnight's Children

Canada, United Kingdom | 2012 | Deepa Mehta

Midnight's Children

Salman Rushdie adapted his own novel for Deepa Mehta’s epic film version. (He also narrates the story.) Two Indian boys—one from a wealthy family, the other the son of a beggar—are born at midnight on August 15, 1947, the day India broke free of British rule. Switched at birth, the two lead very different lives during the next 30 years. Their growing pains reflect those of their young nation. “Big in both ideas and heart.” –Empire.
