Review

Monica Ali’s expansive, epic best seller about decades in the life of a sheltered wife from Bangladesh in the titular London neighborhood is transformed into a compact, delicate tale of adultery, extremism, and awakening. The reduction works: Sarah Gavron’s delicately observed film eschews the scope of the novel and wisely takes a more focused approach.
