Brick Lane Story

Brick Lane, the film tells the story of a woman named Nazneen, a Bengali girl who grew up in rural Bangladesh, in the district of Mymensingh, and she moves to London in Brick Lane at the age of 17, with her husband Chanu Ahmed, who is twice her age and was wedded to her in an arranged marriage.

On doing this she leaves behind her sister and her home. Married to a man she does not love, she receives letters from her sister about her carefree life, living vicariously through those letters. The film picks up the story with the couple having lived in a small flat for 18 years and having had two daughters.

Nazneen is filled with desire when a young, good-looking clothing worker visits her house and she has an affair with him. The movie is set during the 9/11 period when racial tensions were heightened, and the Bangladeshi Muslim community was becoming increasingly religious including the character Karim.
