Adapted from Vikas Swarup's novel Q&A by Simon Beaufoy, Boyle's film chronicles a Mumbai street urchin (Skins' Dev Patel) who makes it to the final round of India's version of Who Wants to be A Millionaire?. Alternatively hilarious and heart wrenching, grimly realistic and dream-like, romantic and resolutely non-sentimental, watching Slumdog Millionaire feels like watching six films at once.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
