Based on Salman Rushdie’s award winning novel and directed by Oscar nominee Deepa Mehta (WATER), MIDNIGHT’S CHILDREN is a lushly visual epic about two boys who are switched at birth and forever marked by history. On the eve of India’s independence from Great Britain, two newborn babies from very different backgrounds are fated to live the destiny meant for each other after a hospital mix-up. Their lives become mysteriously intertwined and linked to India's whirlwind journey of triumphs and disasters. Hopeful, comic, and magical, the film conjures images and characters as rich and unforgettable as India itself.
