In November 2008 terrorists carried out a coordinated series of attacks on Mumbai and its legendary Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. In his debut feature, director Anthony Maras compellingly recreates the tragedy of those fateful four days. With humanity and nail-biting precision, Maras masterfully builds the tension, yet never loses sight of the cost of these terrible events.
Hotel Mumbai is a fitting tribute to the selfless heroism of the Taj hotel staff, many of whom sacrificed their own lives to save their guests.
