Synopsis:
“After moving from Calcutta to New York, members of the Ganguli family maintain a delicate balancing act between honoring the traditions of their native India and blending into American culture. Although parents Ashoke (Irrfan Khan) and Ashima (Tabu) are proud of the sacrifices they make to give their offspring opportunities, their son Gogol (Kal Penn) strives to forge his own identity without forgetting his heritage.” PG-13

3) Last week’s readings from Chhuon and Hudley about Islands of Meaning (last week’s look at Ch. 15, 16, and 17).
4) Any additional connections you see to Mead or Cooley, etc.
Your assessment could include the use of examples from the film to reinforce one of these concepts, connections between concepts that you saw portrayed in the film, characters that embodied elements of these concepts, or critiques/questions that arise from watching the film in regards to course concepts.
