synopsis

Directed by Danny Boyle, this Academy Award® winning film tells the story of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), a young orphan from the slums of Mumbai who is one question away from the ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ jackpot. Arrested on suspicion of cheating and desperate to prove his innocence, he tells the incredible story of his life: the chaos of the streets he and his brother grew up in; their wild adventures on the road and of vicious run-ins with local gangs; and Lakita (Freida Pinto), the girl he loved and lost. But what is a kid with no interest in money doing on the s how and how is it he knows all the answers? Based on the best-selling book Q&A by Vikas Swarup and written by Simon Beaufoy (The Full Monty ), Slumdog Millionaire is undoubtedly the feel good hit of the year.
