It's the story of a young man in India who is on the TV game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. When he goes all the way to the top, he is arrested for fraud because no one can believe a "slumdog" could be so smart. The movie follows a series of flashbacks that explain the circumstance throughout his life that taught him the answers to the questions he's asked on the game show. Slumdog is also a very moving love story. The acting is great, the way it is filmed is great, and the music is a lot of fun, too.
Jamie and I really enjoyed watching this slice of Indian life because we're planning a mission trip to India for next October. Google Slumdog Millionaire and find out the closest theatre to you that's playing it and check it out!
