Synopsis

Like lead character Jamal, Slumdog Millionaire was an underdog which went on to have massive success, bagging eight Academy Awards. Dev Patel plays the slum-dwelling teen suspected of cheating when he wins the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. It's only by recounting his extraordinary life story that Jamal can escape punishment. Slumdog combines the plot twists of a Charles Dickens novel and the vibrancy of a Bollywood musical into a fantastically fun adventure.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
