Slumdog Millionaire – 5 stars

Slumdog Millionaire.  Director Danny Boyle finds the best use of his frenetic style (as seen in Trainspotting, Millions and 21 Days Later) as he navigates the lives of three Indian “slumdogs” (poor, homeless children) through adulthood, all accompanied by the remembrances of one who has won India’s “Who Wants To be a Millionaire?”   He is suspected as a cheat and to the police investigator, for each question, he recounts a vignette that explains his ability to answer.  The picture is vibrant, thrilling and wildly romantic and at the end, the audience where I saw it cheered enthusiastically at the screen.  Rightfully so.
