“Horrifying, humorous and life-affirming, it is, above all, unforgettable” — USA Today
I had heard about Slumdog Millionaire, except I had heard “humorous and life-affirming…unforgettable”. And so when a plan was floated for a group of my friends to go see the movie together, I was completely game. It was a very good movie but I wish I had heard the “horrifying” part in advance. I might not have been so keen to see it or I would at least have been braced for it. I don’t think the outcome at the end was worth the horrors the characters lived to get there. It certainly provided very vivid imagery of India, though.
