Movie of the year 08

we originally wanted to watch Slumdog Millionaire at the Toronto Film Festival but didn't get a chance until just last week over the holidays. the audience gave it a well deserved standing ovation. this factual story turned into a novel now a movie was told seamlessly. the revealing look into the life of Mumbai's slum is just one of the terrifying story lines intertwined with a beautiful young love story. by far my favorite movie of the year.

if you get a chance, check it out. i admit, it's not a movie for everyone as it depicts children in very disturbing ways but if this movie doesn't pull at your heart strings i don't know what will. there's a lot of controversary with this movie being a twisted north american version of what the division in Mumbai between muslims have caused but regardless, it's an eye opening movie that makes you appreciate your blessed life here in north america.
