Slumdog Millionaire

Love and money... You have mixed them both.

The multi-award winning movie finally hits the big screens here. As a young man who grew up in the slums is about to strike it big on ''Who Wants to be a Millionaire'', he is arrested on suspicion of cheating. He struggles to persuade the cops that the tough life he had as an orphan in the slums, somehow provided him with the knowledge that he needed to answer the questions correctly. Furthermore, he is taking part in the show for a reason more to do with love than money... and destiny is about to lend a hand.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconBoyle's feature draws the viewer in, immersing him in a fast-moving, engaging narrative featuring a protagonist who is so likeable it's almost unfair. The movie has moments of heartbreak and tragedy but it is ultimately uplifting and contains pretty much all the instances an audience will want.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconOperating on a number of levels, all of which work terrifically, Slumdog Millionaire is a superb piece of filmmaking that reassures viewers — usually bombarded with mediocre to horrific cinematic offerings — that movies can still surprise, enthuse and completely capture one's heart and mind. It's a must-see.
