TIFF Trailer: English Vinglish Directed by Gauri Shinde

The film captures a modern day struggle experienced all too often by the un-American elite trying to make it in America: the language barrier. Sridevi's character, Shashi, is made to feel insecure by society (aka family, friends) in her inability to speak proper English. As she takes strides to fix this–by enrolling in an ESL class–Shinde shows audiences one woman's transformation from orally inept to orally mastering a language, and a culture, that was once foreign to her.  (description via the Playlist)
