slumdog Milionaire

I’ve recently watched this poignant, heart-rending and sometimes harrowing film again, Directed by Danny Boyle and starring Dev Patel as Jamal, an 18 year old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who manages to get on the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and is accused of cheating when he gets the answers right.

The film follows his extraordinary journey from the slums of Mumbai, losing his Mother, then his childhood sweetheart along the way and charts his progress on his way to the 20 Million Rupee prize money and eventually being reunited with his childhood sweetheart Lathika (Freida Pinto, looking absolutely gorgeous).
