Slumdog Millionaire

Don't wait to talk about: "Slumdog Millionaire." At first, the premise may sound contrived: The story of a young man growing up in the slums of India unfolds while he answers a series of relevant questions in the hot seat of India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" But Danny Boyle's film instead paints a flesh-and-bones picture of hope against the devastating backdrop of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) through the years. (Friday)Ishika Mohan / Fox Searchlight
