The Strange Luck of V.S. Naipaul

The Strange Luck of V.S. Naipaul

When Sir Vidia Naipaul agreed to have a film made about him he said he wanted it to be “as personal as possible”.  This is indeed a candid personal portrait, presenting the 2001 Nobel Laureate for Literature in the three places that have been most influential to his writing career: his native Trinidad, his ancestral home of India, and Wiltshire in england, where he lived for many years.  A moving and touching documentary being shown as a tribute to the late author.
