Pinto film for Tribeca film fest

Freida Pinto's new movie Trishna is among the offerings being shown at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.

The Slumdog Millionaire star's film, directed by Michael Winterbottom and adapted from Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles, will be shown alongside Julie Delpy's 2 Days In New York and Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz at the New York event.

In 2 Days In New York, a sequel to 2 Days In Paris, Julie stars with Chris Rock as a New York couple with visiting family from Paris.

Take This Waltz is Canadian actress Sarah's follow-up to her debut, Away From Her. It stars Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen as a married couple stressed by the temptation of an affair.

The directors of the Oscar-nominated Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, will present their Chicken With Plums, a French-language film starring Mathieu Amalric as a violin player in 1950s Tehran.

Starring in other Tribeca selections are Maggie Gyllenhaal (Hysteria), Greta Gerwig (Lola Versus), John Hawkes (The Playroom), Salma Hayek (As Luck Would Have It) and Jesse Eisenberg (Free Samples).

Documentaries will tackle a variety of subjects, including baseball (Knuckleball!), creativity in the time of President Ronald Reagan (Let Fury Have The Hour), the rock band Queen (Queen: Days of Our Lives) and male beauty (Mansome, by Morgan Spurlock).

The 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival will be held on April 18-29. Opening the festival will be The Five-Year Engagement, a comedy starring Jason Segel and produced by Judd Apatow.
