"Slumdog Millionaire," Danny Boyle's ("Trainspotting") fantastic film, won big at the 33rd annual Toronto International Film Festival. The movie nabbed the People's Choice award.
The film tells the tale of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an impoverished Indian teen, who becomes a contestant on the Hindi version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?." Why? Not to win money, but to prove his love for his friend Latika (Freida Pinto) who's a big fan of the show.

And of course, all these interviews will be up on this site, very, very soon!

Watching a new Coen Brothers (“No Country for Old Men”) movie is a treat. You know you will see a truly original film and meet interesting characters along the way.
From the psychotic Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) in “No Country for Old Men” to the smart, pregnant cop Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand) in “Fargo,” the gifted filmmakers etch out indelible characters that remain with us long after the films have been released.
