the characters, the movie is uncanny in its

Ebert adds, “I don’t expect Crash to work any
miracles, but I believe anyone seeing it is
likely to be moved to have a little more sympathy for people not like themselves.” R
Slumdog Millionaire. Ebert says, “This is a
breathless, exciting story, heartbreaking and
exhilarating at the same time, about a Mumbai
orphan who rises from rags to riches on the
strength of his lively intelligence.” The lead

on the Indian version of the TV game show
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. The film has
action, humor, romance and an awesome
Bollywood ending. You don’t have to be from
India or familiar with Indian culture to be
able to embrace this movie. R

novel, features an international all-star cast
(including David Niven, Cantinflas, Shirley
MacLaine and many more). It is filled with
