Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

 Rated R for a few swears.

Episode #95 in the Next 100 Project scoots over to India to look at the Oscar-sweeping love story/fairy tale between Jamal & Latika. This flick charmed the world 10 years ago, but we’re not sure if people care that much about it now. It’s certainly got its share of great scenes though and it’s a fun time at the movies, despite some brutally dark material. Go to and save 10% on your first order when you use the discount code “Top100Project”.

For The Record: To nitpick, Slumdog won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF, not the Audience Award.
