Slumdog Millionaire

I was so happy to see Slumdog Millionaire nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture. After hearing quite a but of buzz about this film, I finally made the trek to the big city of Salt Lake a few nights ago and saw it at the Broadway with my ladies. It's an amazing film- not always easy to watch, it leaves you squirming in your seat from time to time (Stephanie took a break- went for a walk, covered her eyes a lot) but well worth the journey it takes you on... and a happy ending, who doesn't like that?
I must admit the only other Best Picture nominee I've seen is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button- but it doesn't even touch Slumdog Millionaire. I guess I better get a few more nights out planned- I really want to see Milk, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, and Revolutionary Road. I might have to head to SLC again to catch these films, not a very good selection in Utah County most of the time.
On that note- don't forget about the BYU International Cinema, the very best independent, classic selection of films- playing on a big screen- in the state perhaps. There are 3 films showing per week through the end of the semester in April. I haven't been in a long time- in college we used to go every week... but I've got the schedule posted this winter and I'm planning it in. Best of all, it's free.
