Movie review: Slumdog Millionaire

Ok. So I've been busy and got a little behind on my movie watching. Glad I finally got round to this Academy Award winner.

In Slumdog Millionaire, Jamal Malik rises from harrowing poverty to love and fortune.

Born in a destitute Indian slum, Jamal's life actually goes downhill when a village massacre orphans him and his brother. Together with lovely Latika, the three children try to survive by any means they can. Jamal and Latika become separated but are reunited when fame brings Jamal on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" TV show. Jamal's life becomes the backdrop as he tries to convince his doubters that he's not cheating.

You just can't help but root for this wonderful young man. as he tells his story. You'll also walk away counting your blessings.
