Director Deepa Mehta (Beeba Boys, Bollywood/Hollywood) completed her landmark Elements trilogy with this brave, perfectly-pitched exploration of lives altered by religious tradition. Delving into Indian society of the 30’s during Ghandi’s rise to prominence, Water is a remarkably inspirational film about a girl who refuses to accept her fate and struggles against powerful rules that turn her into a prisoner without a future.
