On "Slumdog Millionaire"
My updated review of Slumdog Millionaire was published in today's Dispatch:
It may follow a familiar path, but Boyle (along with screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, a fellow Oscar nominee) has the good sense to make a few new stops along the way. "Slumdog Millionaire" is a wonderful film, a luminous and uplifting ode to love and humanity with the power to make the heart swoon and the spirit soar. It is the movie of the moment to be sure, but in our national climate of hope and optimism amid economic crises, "Slumdog Millionaire" feels like the film we need at just the right moment - fresh, moving and, above all, hopeful.Click here to read my full review.
This is what the movies are all about.
I am glad Slumdog is finding a broader audience now.
