Richard Gere is My Hero is a heartwarming, character-driven romantic comedy with political undertones by Tashi Wangchuk and Tsultrim Dorjee.The story follows a group of young Tibetan friends living in Mcleod Danj, India, headquarters for the Tibetan government-in-exile. Nyima, who calls himself Richard and is a great admirer of Richard Gere for his acting and activism, has dreams of also becoming a famous actor and helping his beloved motherland. While Nyima and his friends go on whirlwind adventures through the city, a love triangle almost detours them from meeting their goal of performing in the Tibetan Youth Congress drama competition. Through the escapades of Nyima and his friends, Wangchuk and Dorjee show us how the many layers of life-including the romantic and the political-can be imitated in art. Written by Tashi Wangchuk & Tsultrim Dorjee

A fun, but insightful drama about life of a few young Tibetan friends in India
1 June 2011 | by mergenc-69-333467See all my reviews

The movie is very good. There is not a lot of scenic shoots, but there is great insight into people's thought process, challenges of their lives, and what an everyday life may look like in the worlds of few young Tibetan friends who live in the exile-community in India.

Although the movie is more of a drama, there is some humor, love, and play with interactions of country folks and tourists from the perspective of the country folks.

The movie is very well done. Watch it if you want to have a fresh perspective about how people act, think, and live elsewhere in the world.
