Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire is the masterful movie from Danny Boyle (28 Days, Trainspotting)……
Unless you live under a rock or never watch TV then there is no way around hearing all the Buzz surrounding this movie. So Friday night Matt & I wanted to go and see what the fuss was all about and this movie did not disappoint! I am sure you have heard this movie was shot on location in Mambai and the story is about a boy (Jamal) from the slums who wins India’s version of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” . Well the officials think he cheated, their thoughts are no way could a poor boy be this smart. SO the story unfolds in flashbacks of his life and how he comes to know the answers. This movie is so well told, it is interesting, and really transports you to India and you are almost a voyeur in Jamal’s life. I felt like I was watching a true story and the leading lady is so beautiful I could not take my eyes off of her. As the Oscars get here I will find myself rooting for this underdog of a movie and the people involved who seem generally grateful to be even nominated! If you have time you should go and check this movie out I posted the trailer below……………
