A good movie: The White Tiger
Originally from a poor village in India, Balram was hired as a driver for a wealthy couple who had just returned from the United States. Very ambitious, the young man will quickly climb the ranks and rebel against an unequal system.
A quick review
From a Booker Prize winning bestseller, The White Tiger is a dark fable which tells the rise of a man of small fortune. It is the eighth feature film from director Ramin Bahrani. The film shows India cut in two: on the one hand, there is disproportionate wealth, on the other endless misery.
Our hero – also the storyteller thanks to a voice-over as effective as it is ironic – begins his life in the second category. Adarsh Gourav plays Balram, an ambitious young man, but conditioned to submit to his “masters” without asking a question. A terrible accident changes everything and this system of dominants / dominated quickly becomes unbearable for him.
His wish now? Take action and try to change things at your own level in a country where inequalities are more significant than ever. The White Tiger is a bit long, but we quickly forgive him for this misstep. Why ? Because its nervous staging and its moving and well-crafted story are enough to convince.
In the feature film, no one is innocent, neither Balram nor his employers, and we quickly realize it. Creaking and black fresco, The White Tiger is a complex film that should succeed in captivating you. In any case, he was able to seduce us.

A funny and touching series: Atypical
The eventful life of Sam, an 18-year-old autistic boy who dreams of love and starting a romantic relationship with the woman of his dreams. But the teenager does not really master all the codes of seduction and his search for the ideal girlfriend will force him to step out of his comfort zone. His new thirst for independence also upsets the habits of his whole family.
His mother hen does not look very favorably on his new fad. His father finally sees the opportunity to get closer to Sam. As for his sister, Casey, she hesitates to go to study far from him, frightened by the potential consequences of his departure on the young man’s balance.
A quick review
Atypical is a series like no other, original, rare and endearing. She deals with difficult subjects, autism and family life with a child with this disorder, without being (too) cliché or stigmatizing. On the contrary, she raises awareness and even manages to be funny and light-hearted by giving us a glimpse into Sam’s daily life.
His tribulations to find love are funny and carry a message of hope. However, the main thing is elsewhere. Under his comic airs, Atypical also knows how to be serious. Often touching, the series tells about the handicap and the attention that an autistic child needs in a home. Casey, Sam’s sister, struggles to find her place and pays the price.
Obviously, it’s very romanticized and not always true to life, but the program can still help to better understand what the families are going through. In short, you would be wrong not to embark on Atypical. The series denotes, it is funny and touching as possible. Its actors are also very convincing, special mention to Keir Gilchrist in the role of Sam.
