Ever since Toronto Film Festival, the Internet has been awash with promos and reviews about the limited release of Slumdog Millionaire. It opened in five cities on November 12th. I received passes for an advanced screening here, in RI, but they are dated December 17th *sigh*. The price I pay for living in a small film market. I had planned to visit my daughter in New Jersey on Wednesday, with a movie matinee before I descended upon she and her family. I was going to see something in the suburbs, but a call from a friend in Chicago, on Monday, raving about the film, had me re-routing my travel through NYC to catch a matinee at the Angelika Film Center. Glad I did.
Slumdog Millionaire is the story of a young man, who grows up in the slums of Mumbai, India. His troubled life gave him all the education he needed to be successful on a poplar, local game show. Beautiful, lyrical, brutal and honest, this is a story of perseverance, survival, loyalty and love. Stay for the credits, a true celebration of spirit. Wonderful film.

And the last post/list was great. Very fond of E, P, S, U and several others.
