“Guerrilla” Premieres Tonight on Showtime!

The day is finally here – Guerrilla premieres tonight on Showtime! Created by Academy Award-winner John Ridley, the six part mini-series was inspired by true events, and tells the story of a pair of activists in 1970s London set out to free a political prisoner and wage a resistance movement. Starring Freida Pinto, Idris Elba and Babou Ceesay, Guerrilla has received great reviews with terrific mentions for Freida.

Variety said “Pinto is exceptional in the role. The actress carries a certain gravitas into her role as Jas Mitra, and as a result she’s both hard to read but strangely familiar by the time the real fireworks start. Pinto proves to have enough heft as an actress that she can balance how zealously she is watched, and how symbolically she is interpreted, into a chin-upraised defiance that channels both Angela Davis and Patty Hearst — a chic icon that is either leading or childishly swept up in something vast and seething.”

Be sure to tune in to Showtime tonight at 9PM to watch the first part of Guerrilla. I have included a few trailers, clips and interviews in this post for you to watch before tonight’s episode. Enjoy!
