slumdog millionaire and upcoming bay area film festivals

If you haven’t checked out Slumdog Millionaire yet, I highly urge you to get to the theater and watch it on the big screen.  Slumdog Millionaire tells the story of Jamal Malik, an 18-year old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is one question away from winning 20 million rupees on the Indian equivalent of “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?”  Jamal’s unlikely journey is re-told in powerful flashbacks, each of which provides a glimpse into a life completely foreign to many of us.  The movie is nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture.  I highly recommend the movie (although could have done without the dancing scene at the end).

As well, there are a couple of cool film festivals coming up in the Bay Area in the next few months.  Keep your eyes peeled, if you’re interested in checking out any of the events.
