THE LUNCHBOX 6th Feb 2015
For its first screening in 2015 Pics and Flicks is pleased to present:
Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system transports
thousands of meals every day from kitchens to offices. A Harvard
University study found that just one in a million lunchboxes is ever
delivered to the wrong address. This is the story of that one lunchbox.
Ila, a neglected housewife, attempts to spice up her marriage by
preparing a special lunch for her husband. When it is accidentally
delivered to Saajan, a lonely widower on the brink of retirement, they
exchange notes to each other to get to the bottom of the mistaken
delivery. Their notes gradually evolve into a series of intimate little
confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears and small
joys. Still strangers physically, Ila and Saajan become swept up in a
relationship built on the fantasy of their letters.
Charming and whimsical, it's a feast for the eyes.
-David Parkinson, EMPIRE MAGAZINE
For the acting alone, "The Lunchbox" is a sumptuous treat.
-Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
comedy is more wry than uproarious, the melodrama gently poignant
rather than operatic, and the sentimentality just sweet enough to be
satisfying rather than bothersome.
