A Movie Worth Seeing: Slumdog Millionaire

Since MAM came on the scene in late 2005, I haven’t been to the movies very much. We watch a lot of movies at home, but we don’t go for the big theatre experience very often. Recently, however, a girlfriend suggested we go see Slumdog Millionaire, and WOW.

Slumdog Millionaire takes place and was filmed in Mumbai, India. Sweeping landscape, stunning color, amazing acting, and intense, intense drama. I have to say that I loved every minute of it, even the painful parts. I loved how the plot was based around “Who wants to be a Millionaire”, and I loved the Indian Regis-like host. The soundtrack is perfect, the three actors who played each of the main characters were incredible–I could go on and on…..

I don’t want to say too much to give it away, but I will say this : GO SEE IT.

  1. I’ve heard lots of good things about this movie. Years ago I read the short book it was based on, called Q&A. I loved the concept, how everything in his life prepared him to answer the obscure questions asked on the show. I’ve heard it was a loose adaptation of the book, but since I don’t remember any of the details of the book I’m sure I won’t mind the changes.

  2. I have requested Q&A at the library. In reading the plot summary, it does sound quite a bit different….but same basic premise!
