January 28, 2009 slumdog millionaire
This film is the best I’ve seen in a long, long, time and I’ve been dying to tell you all about it.
It’s basically about a young man from the slums of India who manages somehow to get really really far in the Indian version of Who wants to be a millionaire, and how he managed to answer the questions.
That sounds kind of so-so, doesn’t it? But honestly, it’s nothing like I expected. It’s raw, gritty, shocking – and at the same time wonderful and uplifting. I’m not going to give away too much: just GO and see it, ok?
