"The Namesake", based on Jhumpa Lahiri's novel of the same name, opens in movie theaters today. The critics' rating at rottentomatoes.com is 89%, ranking it as "cream of the crop". The film critic for the Wall Street Journal says, "This immensely pleasurable film is . . . a saga of the immigrant experience that captures the snap, crackle and pop of American life, along with the pounding pulse, emotional reticence, volcanic colors and cherished rituals of Indian culture."
