Slumdog Millionaire

If you have not seen this movie, you should go see it. It has got to be the best movie that I have ever seen. It evoked so much emotion in me and Bill that I could not leave the dark theater for at least 10 minutes after it finished because I could not stop sobbing. It was truly a wonderful story.
A story of two young boys living in the slums of Mumbai (Bombay). These children were left orphaned by a horrible terrorist attack on their village. While seeking shelter from the rain, the two brothers Jamal and Salim befriend an adorable little girl named Latika who is orphaned herself.
They refer to themselves as the "Three Musketeer's". The story of their lives is shown in flashbacks as Jamal has to defend himself from police interrogation when he is close to winning twenty million rupees on India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". He is accused of cheating, because no one could believe that an ignorant child from the slum could know all the answers. But he has lived all the answers. Let me know what you thought if you see it. If you haven't seen it, please do so. It is so touching.
