In Europe today, the children of immigrants are often more religiously devout than are their parents. Based on Hanif Kureishi’s short story of the same title, My Son the Fanatic explores this dynamic through the lives of an easy-going Pakistan-born taxi driver, his prostitute girlfriend, and his increasingly “tradition”-minded son. Contains mature content, including sexuality, language, and a scene of drug use. (35mm Presentation)
