I began reading about this (somewhat) independent film several months ago.
Shot in India, starring unknowns (at least to American filmgoers) and about a “slumdog” boy who finds himself winning a great amount of money on the Indian version of “Who wants to be a millionaire”.
I won’t spoil the plot / movie for you, but while there were some difficult scenes to watch from time to time in the movie, on several levels, this is one of the best movies I’ve seen in years.
If it comes to a movie near you, you might want to catch the cheap-seat matinee seating and watch it unfold in front of you.
Btw, if you’re a cheap ba$tard like me, you’ll probably want to take your own popcorn and soft drink. We used our frequent-member card for $6 per ticket vs the usual $9, but then paid $6 for a large popcorn and $4 for a medium coke.
To theater owners, I say Netflicks is looking better every day.
