Midnight's Children

A modern twist on The Prince & the Pauper

Follow along as 2 boys are switched at birth, & their overlapping destinies take them on a riveting ride on the course to nationhood for India, Pakistan, & Bangladesh. Written by author Salman Rushdie, it could be said that this is the book that put him on the map. Seen as a love letter to India, Rushdie’s done a brilliant job of adapting his own huge story with Canadian director Deepa Mehta for the big screen (fun fact: he sold the rights to the film for just $1USD). ‘It's a watchable, robust piece of storytelling…’ – The Guardian. General admission.
