Slumdog Millionaire is funny and heart-breaking, beautiful and brutal, shocking and joyous.
This is a story about the love between two brothers; about first love; a story about survival. An elder brother who does what it takes to keep them both alive, and his younger siblings single-minded determination to hold on to what matters in the slums of Mumbai which, despite the abject raw poverty and filth, is, at times, beautifully filmed.
It is a good story, well told. Go see it.
