    "BRICK LANE" SYNOPSIS

    At the tender age of seventeen, Nazneen’s life is turned upside down. After an arranged marriage to an older man, she exchanges her Bangladeshi village home for a block of flats in London’s East End. In this new world, pining for her home and her sister, she struggles to make sense of her existence – and to do her duty to her husband. A man of inflated ideas (and stomach), he sorely tests her compliance.
    But Nazneen submits, as she must, to Fate and devotes her life to raising her family and slapping down her demons of discontent. Until the day that Karim, a hot-headed local man, bursts into her life.
    Against a background of escalating racial tension, they embark on an affair that finally forces Nazneen to take control of her life. Set in multicultural Britain, Brick Lane is a truly contemporary story of love, cultural difference, and ultimately, the strength of the human spirit. Rolling Eyes

    My Remark:
    However, this movie has shown Bangladeshi Males as some dominating butchers who are perceptually negative to their wives....Yet, I'm not sure about the purpose of the movie.

    Then, why can't we write novels on their $300 Dollar Quick Divorce, Common Law or Single Mother traditions?

    In a western country..any Bangladeshi male takes forever to enter in the mainstream..but a female takes just a few weeks to settle down..This is how the system works..
