Slumdog Millionaire

Hosted by Ian

Date 19 December

Score 70%

The evening included the canape competition hosted by Robin. Ian has selected the category of film with an Oscar winning score. Having selected two excellent Italian Reds there was a distinct possibility that we could have been watching The Godfather. However, at over 3 hours long we needed something a little shorter. We could have watched The Sound of Music or Breakfast at Tiffany's. Slumdog Millionaire won the Oscar for best original score in 2008. It also won 7 other Oscar's. Danny Boyle's story of a boy growing up in a Mumbai slum is excellent. Who can forget the image of a young Jamal jumping into a pile of shit in order to get out of a locked toilet?
