Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto turns up in two upcoming films: Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, which premiered modestly well at Cannes (Sony Pictures Classics opens it stateside September 22, presumably after the Toronto Film Fest), and Julian Schnabel's Miral, which is set to debut at Venice before its December release, and could kick up some controversy for Weinstein Co., due to its pro-Palestinian subject. (The French trailer is below.) Rula Jebreal adapted her novel about a Jerusalem orphanage run by a Palestinian (Hiam Abbass); Pinto plays one of her teen orphans.

Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto turns up in two upcoming films: Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, which premiered modestly well at Cannes (Sony Pictures Classics opens it stateside September 22, presumably after the Toronto Film Fest), and Julian Schnabel's Miral, which is set to debut at Venice before its December release, and could kick up some controversy for Weinstein Co., due to its pro-Palestinian subject. (The French trailer is below.) Rula Jebreal adapted her novel about a Jerusalem orphanage run by a Palestinian (Hiam Abbass); Pinto plays one of her teen orphans.

In Tall Dark Stranger, Pinto is the object of desire for unhappy writer Josh Brolin; his marriage to Naomi Watts isn't going well, and neither is his novel. Pinto, however, lights up his day. While there's no question Allen's career is on the downward slope from his peaks in the 70s and 80s, this is one of his funnier, sharper relationship comedies; he's still more than able to lure terrific actors to bring his scripts to life.
