Does Michael Winterbottom ever stop working? In the 17 years since his debut "Butterfly Kiss," he's helmed twenty feature films, averaging more than one a year, and the director has several more in the works: he's wrapped on "King of Soho," with Steve Coogan, ambitious, multi-year project "Here and There" is nearing completion, and he's got Jack Black vehicle "Bailout" and Beatles flick "The Longest Cocktail Party" on the dance card as well. And his most recent picture isn't even in theaters yet.

Does Michael Winterbottom ever stop working? In the 17 years since his debut "Butterfly Kiss," he's helmed twenty feature films, averaging more than one a year, and the director has several more in the works: he's wrapped on "King of Soho," with Steve Coogan, ambitious, multi-year project "Here and There" is nearing completion, and he's got Jack Black vehicle "Bailout" and Beatles flick "The Longest Cocktail Party" on the dance card as well. And his most recent picture isn't even in theaters yet.

But it's not long before it is: "Trishna" is hitting theaters, courtesy of IFC Films, in a couple of months, and we're pleased to exclusively unveil the U.S. poster for the latest film from one of our favorite directors. The picture sees Winterbottom return to the Thomas Hardy well that proved so successful on "Jude" and "The Claim," for a contemporary spin on "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" set in modern-day India. The film stars Riz Ahmed ("Four Lions") and Freida Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire"), and revolves around the torrid romance between a British man (Ahmed) running his father's hotel chains in India, and the maid that he falls for (Pinto). Check the poster out below, and you can see "Trishna" in theatesr from July 13th.
