Movie Review: Slumdog Millionaire
Tonight Dean and I went to see Slumdog Millionaire. Hmmmm....I have to say I had NO preconceived notions about this movie, other than friends said it was really good.
I have to agree with my friends!
I don't even know where to start in describing this movie. It's the story of one boy, and the very rough life he has in Bombay, India. (which later becomes Mumbai) who becomes a contestant on India's version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". This movie has some parts that are very difficult to watch, but at the same time they're important to the story.
I know NOTHING about India and the culture there, other than there is an unbelievable poverty. I'm really curious to know how accurately the movie portrayed some of the things the children in the movie went through, so I can decide how angry I want to be! LOL
