danny boyle's slumdog millionaire

A movie I've really been looking forward to seeing this fall is Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire. I'm a huge fan of Boyle's work, and the premise is really intriguing. The film tells the story of an illiterate street kid from Mumbai who makes it onto India's version of Who Whats to Be a Millionaire? in order to reconnect with his lost love, who he knows watches the show religiously.

The movie's been getting some great, rave reviews and has been a big hit at a number of film festivals, including Telluride and Toronto (it was awarded the People's Choice Award at TIFF). Watch the trailer here. You can also view a clip from the film here. It looks fantastic, and I can't wait to see it. The movie opens in theaters on November 12.
