The Namesake

I wasn't expecting that much from Mira Nair's family epic, but "The Namesake" floored me. It is not without its faults -- its narrative jumps around awkwardly at times -- but the movie tells its sweet and moving tale with such eloquence and heart. There are other films from this year that are more artistically made, but few will affect you in the way "The Namesake" does. It's simply irresistible.
