Resting on the shoulders of 9 novices playing 3 characters @ various ages, SLUMDOG uses state-of-the-art tools and techniques from “first world” filmmaking to tell a “third world” story that respects real life in Mumbai while still providing audiences everywhere with a credibly upbeat ending. First truly great film of the new “flat world” — bravo!  Click here to read FF2 haiku.  Click here to read my full review for the Fund for Women Artists online.
