The Hendersonville Film Society is showing Danny Boyle’s well-deserved multi-Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire (2008) this coming Sunday. I certainly have nothing against this choice, but at the same time, I don’t find myself with anything fresh to add to my original review (www.mountainx.com/movies/review/slumdog_millionaire), where I noted, “It’s a truly remarkable work—that incredible rarity of a film that is both a crowd-pleaser and absolutely brilliant filmmaking. It’s a joyous, moving, living work that propels Boyle to the forefront of filmmakers working today.”
The Hendersonville Film Society will show Slumdog Millionaire at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 21, in the Smoky Mountain Theater at Lake Pointe Landing Retirement Community (behind Epic Cinemas), 333 Thompson St., Hendersonville.
