Slumdog Millionaire Danny Boyle (2008, 35mm, 120 mins)

The debut film for Dev Patel and Freida Pinto—and the first international film for Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor—won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Described as “Oliver Twist by way of City of God” (Peter Howell), Slumdog Millionaire recounts a street kid’s improbable rise to game show glory and the young love that drove him to succeed. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
