With the fall (and soon winter) film season here we can expect to see the contenders for Academy Awards start to be released! For fun, check out some of the recent films which earned the top prize of Best Picture here. If you’ve already seen all of the films on the list, why not borrow them and watch them again?! The Academy of Motion Picture will be very pleased with you if you do!
My personal suggestion is to begin with the most recent winner, Slumdog Millionaire:
Jamal Malik is an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India’s version of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” When the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating. Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the layered story of his life in the slum which reveals where he learned the answers to the show’s seemingly impossible questions. When the new day dawns, the Inspector and sixty million viewers watch to find out if Jamal can answer the final question.
