Slumdog Millionaire

slum-dog-millionaireI rarely publicly recommend a movie, but I have to make an exception after viewing Slumdog Millionaire.   This movie pulled at so many different emotions in a single film.  All the ingredients of a great film:

– Unique storyline
– Great cinematography
– Interesting and appropriate music
– Educational
– It was different to not have an American at the center of the plot, which we will see more of in this new era of globalization
– And of course, a good romance (not based off sensuality, but true romance)

There are some difficult parts to watch, but they are based in reality. When we watch tough scenes that are based in reality, it increases our compassion for people we don’t know.  Yet, there were enough delightful aspects to this movie to give the movie an overall positive feel.
