Well, this very interesting movie got many awards at the Oscars tonight. I did see it last Tuesday and it is a good movie. It is however very sad in a way, the horrible poverty and living conditions of India are not glossed over in this movie. I was pleased to hear that they were bringing the cast of young kids that played the two brothers and the girl through the years to America and to the awards ceremony in Los Angeles. These kids were pretty much chosen off the streets of Mumbai for their roles in this movie.
It was good to see their sweet little faces, all scrubbed clean and dressed in fine clothes, on the podium tonight as this wonderful movie won the award for 'Best Movie.'
If you get a chance to... go...see it...you'll be glad you did. And when you leave the theater you'll have a new appreciation for all that we have.
A word of warning...this movie is not for children, especially under the age of 15 or so.
