LOS ANGELES  •  Laemmle's Grande 4-Plex  •  Ongoing

Based on the best-selling novel by Vikas Swarup (Q & A), nominee 2009 Academy Awards: Best Foreign Film 2008 and winner of four 2009 Golden Globe awards (including Best Picture -Drama), Slumdog Millionaire tells the story of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an 18-year old tea boy at a call centre in Mumbai. As we meet him, at the beginning of Danny Boyle's 'Slumdog Millionaire', he is just one question away from bagging the top prize in the Indian version of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' So unbelievable is the prospect of Jamal actually winning, the authorities arrest him, beat him up and begin interrogating him. Through their questions, we embark on a colourful journey through Jamal's life, learning on the way, just how he managed to answer all the quiz show's questions correctly. Romantic, yet realistic, British director Boyle brings his trademark focus and pace to this colourful tale of hope and inspiration, with a cast and feel-good story that leaves most viewers charmed.
