Description

Three young women in India struggle to maintain their identities and follow their dreams amid pressure to enter into arranged marriages. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not, yet career aspirations become secondary when the women face the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another. A SUITABLE GIRL examines these women’s complex relationship with marriage, family and society.
