I tend to enjoy movies that have a current events theme to it. Syriana, Thank You for Smoking, and Up in The Air are a few examples of what I am talking about.
The Reluctant Fundamentalist has this theme, but also has the finance theme, which could appeal to many WSO users.
This movie follows the story of Changez (Riz Ahmed), a young Pakistani man who attends a target school and joins a PE firm as an analyst. Changez was a rising star at his firm until the events of September 11 throws a wrench into his 'american dream'.
