Slumdog Millionaire

I don’t often go to see award-winning films. I generally suspect that film juries are looking for different things to me. Unless it’s the award for special effects, admittedly, which does often tickle my fancy.

But I have been intrigued by the success of Slumdog Millionaire.  Having been to Mumbai a few years ago and having a friend who is involved with a charity that helps children in India, I decided it sounded interesting.

So I went to see it tonight. And it is a great movie; I was well impressed. A story of hope against overwhleming odds. I hope it does well in the oscars. And I hope that the child actors who were so good in it have a bright future.
