The Wedding Guest
British director Michael Winterbottom casts UK star Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, Lion) against type as an agenda-fuelled action antihero in this nail-biting neo-noir thriller. It’s a role in which he excels, as his character navigates shifting loyalties and a densely–populated Pakistan, we’re never quite sure of his motivation…
Jay (Dev Patel) flies from the UK to Pakistan in order to attend a wedding. But packed alongside his suit are a shotgun, some duct tape and a mission to kidnap the bride-to-be. But the plan quickly escalates beyond his control and Jay is forced on the run with his hostage.
