IBJ 'Slumdog' movie night

November 21, 2008

Okay, now that we've groggily made it through a pair of midnight screenings of Hollywood popcorn flicks ("Quantum of Solace" and "Twilight"), let's change the pace a little with a serious Oscar contender...at a reasonable hour.

"Slumdog Millionaire" has not only earned rave reviews, but it also picked up the People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival. An audience-pleaser that the critics love? Let's see for ourselves at AMC Castleton Square 14 on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 7:30.

I've got pases to give away. Just e-mail me at lharry@ibj.com. Of course, supplies are limited so act quickly. And know that you'll have to pick up the pass from our downtown office. I'll e-mail all the information to the winners. 

So what is "Slumdog Millionaire"? I'm not one to give away too many plot details (I hate spoilers), so let's just point out:

 --that it's got a 93% positive rating from the top critics at rottentomatoes.com.

 --that it's directed by Danny Boyle, the ecclectic force behind "Millions," "Trainspotting," and "28 Days Later."

--that if you realy have to take a look, you can see a trailer and get all the info you want here.

Good luck.

P.S.: If you happen to have been to either "Twilight" or the Bond film, feel free to share your thoughts below.?
