Slumdog Millionaire: The Shooting Script by Simon Beaufoy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my gosh, so good.
I haven't watched the movie yet. I can only hope it holds its own against this masterful epic. The story isn't so much about the quiz show as it is about Thomas's life, his loves, and his efforts to overcome the deprivations of his youth and achieve lasting happiness for himself -- but especially for all those people he loves. Through it all, he remains as honest, upright, and good-hearted as any street kid can be.
If you loved Oliver Twist, you'll love this book.
