Dev Patel (Lion, Slumdog Millionaire) is a mysterious and compelling presence in Michael Winterbottom’s thrilling, modern film noir about a wedding guest with ulterior motives.

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 Protected content The Trip, SFF Protected content On the Road, SFF Protected content , 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.

"Winterbottom... creates a story about gorgeous people committing crimes and double-crossing each other, where no one is innocent."
