Freida Pinto is "Trishna"

Freida Pinto, known for her role in "Slumdog Millionaire," came out on Tuesday dressed in Rachel Roy for a screening of her new film, "Trishna."

Pinto plays the film's namesake, a woman from a poor family in the Indian village of Osian who gets entangled in a relationship with a wealthy man from London. The story, based on Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," is writer and director Michael Winterbottom's third adaptation of a Hardy novel.

"I learned a brilliant thing from a director a few years ago," Pinto said to the audience at the screening, held at the IFC Center in New York's West Village. "I learned not to raise expectations, to let people enjoy and not tell them what to feel."
