An honest, sensitive portrait of disability and the sexual awakening of an adventurous young woman, Margarita With a Straw has
garnered praise around the world, and caused social waves in India upon
release for its compassionate portrayal of taboo subjects rarely seen
on screen. Featuring a remarkable and critically acclaimed lead
performance from international actress / Bollywood star Kalki Koechlin.
Indian writer/director Shonali Bose (director of the internationally
renowned film AMU) beautifully portrays the story of a luminous Indian
teenager with cerebral palsy who leaves her homeland to study in New
York, falls in love with a young blind woman, and begins a remarkable
journey to self-discovery and independence. Bose was inspired to write
this humane story by her cousin’s experience with cerebral palsy.
