Polite Society’s Breakout Star Talks Breaking Social Norms And Making A Kick-Ass Movie For Young Brown Girls


Across 2023 new movie releases, like the recent John Wick sequel or the upcoming Fast and the Furious entry, there still are not enough action movies directed by female filmmakers to talk about. Enter Polite Society. Nida Manzoor’s first feature is a martial arts comedy that is among this year’s most original films of the year – that is if you let “the fury” into your heart. Plus, it stars a breakout talent, Priya Kansara, who I don’t think we’ve seen the last of, by any measure. 

CinemaBlend got to speak to Polite Society’s leading actress Priya Kansara, who finds her first starring role in a movie with the release, and yes, she did her own stunts. During our interview, she reacted to the love the movie has received so far, between the incredible reaction it received at Sundance to Malala showing up at the London premiere and calling it a “clever and captivating film” on her Instagram. In Kansara’s words: 

I think for any of us, the fact that this film has touched anyone particularly, you know, I think like young Brown girls, when they say that they feel connected to this film, honestly, it’s so special. Like we couldn’t have hoped for a better reception. It’s been amazing.
