Until now, the teasers and previews for Michael Winterbottom's "Trishna" have largely focused on the lush Indian setting and the handsome faces of its two leads, but with the film now a few months away from hitting theaters, a brand new trailer has arrived showing off the tougher dramatic undercurrent running through it.

Starring Riz Ahmed and Freida Pinto, the film is an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," but transported to Rajasthan, India, and follows the tragic romance between the lower class daughter of a rickshaw owner, and the upper class son of a property developer. He sweeps her off her feet, but when they move to the big city, their differences, dependence and expectations are put to the test. Certainly, the film looks gorgeous and sounds great -- due in no small part to the songs by Indian film composer Amit Trivedi and a score by Shigeru Umebayashi -- but reviews have been mixed thus far. That said, with two very likeable leads, we'll be keeping an eye out. And classic film fans take note: "Trishna" gently lifts one of the most memorable one liners of all time...

"Trishna" opens on July 13th. Watch below.
