Sita Sings the Blues (2008)

NR 02/28/2009 (US) AnimationDramaMusicRomanceFantasy 1h 22m

The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.


Utilizing the 1920s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, the epic Indian tale of exiled prince Ramayana and his bride Sita is mirrored by a spurned woman's contemporary personal life, and light-hearted but knowledgeable discussion of historical background by a trio of Indian shadow puppets.
