“Rich men are born with opportunities they can waste, but the poor man...?”

The Film Board convenes to talk about Ramin Bahrani’s new Netflix film The White Tiger as our first film discussion of 2021. What does the film have to say about India’s caste system and does it relate universally to the haves and have nots? The performances are great, particularly from Adarsh Gourav as the lead, but the structure is a bit of a stumbling block for us. But is it enough of a stumble to keep us from enjoying it? Andy, Ocean, and Kyle meet in the board room to talk about the film and what they thought of it. Tune in!
