"maybe it is written, no?"

If you shell out the money to see a movie in the theater any time soon, please please please go see Slumdog Millionaire. I don't think watching it at home would do it justice- seeing (and hearing) it in the theater was so powerful. It's shocking and funny and beautiful- it will break your heart and lift it in the same moment- and the soundtrack is amazing. The young kids in the beginning of the movie are truly slum children from Mumbai. Some of the movie is in subtitles, but you won't even remember it. It cleaned up at the Golden Globes, it's nominated for 10 Oscars, and it deserves all the credit it can get.
