Film: Slumdog Millionaire

My old roommate Ben was watching this sci-fi movie so, obviously, I made fun of him. "It's by Danny Boyle dude" he responded. DANNY BOYLE! In the geekiest nerd voice I could muster up I tormented him for weeks with "It's by Danny Boyle dude". I loved Trainspotting. Disturbing as it was it remains one of my favorite films of all time. Ben was a bigger fan of 28 Days Later I believe. Flash forward to 2008 and Danny Boyle has turned his attention to India. Slumdog Millionaire is a film about a boy from the slums who goes on India's equivalent of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire and unexpectedly performs real well. No one believes him though. Here's the trailer:


I'm sure when it sees its full release it won't be at a lot of theatres. If all goes well tomorrow (Tuesday) I'll be seeing this at Lincoln Center at 7:30 PM. Anyone care to join? Oh. You've got a thing? Can't make it? You want to but- yeah, short notice. I know. Okay then. Nooo, it's cool. I'll be fine. Well, take care now!
