Episode 91: Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
Released 14 July 2021
For this episode, we watched Slumdog Millionaire, written by Simon Beaufoy, from the book Q & A by Vikas Swarup. It was directed by Danny Boyle and starred Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Anil Kapur and Irrfan Khan. It won a tremendous eight Oscars including for Danny Boyle as director and for the screenplay, but none of its cast was even nominated.
