More than just a millionaire
British director Danny Boyle, best known for the movies Trainspotting, Millions, & 28 Days Later has a new movie at theaters called Slumdog Millionaire. With a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and adapted from the book, Q & A by Vikas Swarup, Slumdog is a big departure from Boyle's last movie, the sci-fi adventure, Sunshine. Slumdog Millionaire follows Jamal Malik, an orphan living on the streets of Mumbai, who becomes a contestant on the Hindi version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire'. He is one question away from winning it all, when police arrest him for suspected cheating. They question how a street beggar could know so much. Jamal then proceeds to tell his amazing life story which in turn reveals how he knows the answers. This movie has been nominated for a best picture award at the Golden Globes and Oscar buzz has been brewing as well!
