Slumdog Millionaire

Up the street from my new place is the coolest little local movie theater. I went there today and watched, "Slumdog Millionaire". The cinematography is excellent and so is the acting. 

Set in India, with "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" as part of the plot, the film takes us on a tour de force back to Jamal's childhood and forward in time. This film tells the story of his life in the slums, how he and his brother survived, and it is also a love story for a girl named Latika. The film was the Winner of the People's Choice Award at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival. It does not disappoint! I give it 5 stars!


  1. Hooray, welcome to blogspot! Its much more user friendly on here than Spaces.

    As for Slumdog Millionaire I've heard nothing but good feedback about this movie so I'll definitely go to check it out. :)

  2. go Slumdog, go! I am rooting for this movie at Oscar time. I know it's an underdog, but doesn't that just fit the movie's plot just perfectly??
