British director Danny Boyle’s new movie, Slumdog Millionaire, is currently generating Oscar buzz with critics strongly tipping it to scoop next year’s Best Film award.
A vibrant modern love story set and shot in India, the film opens in the UK on January 9, 2009, but whatsontv.co.uk and its Movie Talk bloggers are inviting readers to a special preview this Sunday, December 14, 2008.
Based on Vikas Swarup’s best selling novel, Q&A, and adapted for the screen by Full Monty scriptwriter Simon Beaufoy, Slumdog Millionaire tells the story of Jamal Malik (played by Skins star Dev Patel), an 18-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai who is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
Arrested on suspicion of cheating, he tells the police the incredible story of his life on the streets, and of the girl he loved and lost. But what is a kid with no interest in money doing on the show? And how is it he knows all the answers?
