Go see Slumdog Millionaire.

If you haven't already, of course.  I went last night with some friends and really enjoyed it.  The directing and cinematography is amazing.  And the acting (from a young group of virtual unknowns) is fantastic.  I am not surprised at all that the film has been winning so many awards.  I'm officially rooting for it to win the Oscar (and that's saying a lot because I normally don't care about movie awards, only television).

ETA:  I just ran across this rather depressing article about two of the children cast in the movie.

I liked the movie a lot. The kids were AMAZING!

I think it would be a HUGE upset if Slumdog doesn't win the Oscar for best picture. Though I do feel that the movie wouldn't be getting quite as much attention if the economy wasn't so crappy.

This is true.

I just edited my post to link to an article about two of the children from the movie who live in the Mumbai slums. It's quite depressing, but also very interesting to read what they're going through.

I went to see this movie today but the wrong times had been printed in the paper and the actual show time was too late for me (I had go to work after). We ended up seeing another movie *cough*Madagascar*cough*.

I'll prob go see it next week.

Too bad you didn't get to see it today. If you get another chance to go, it's definitely worth watching. :-)
