Renee is joined by author Saba Razvi to dissect the 2006 drama 'The Namesake', directed by Mira Nair. Originally based on the novel with the same title by Jhumpa Lahiri, Renee and Saba analyze each prominent character in the movie and how they made an impact to the larger South Asian community during a time when fair South Asian representation in Hollywood was rare to find. They also talk about the duality of being Asian American and the struggles and expectations of representing multiple cultures.
