Millions British comedy-fantasy-drama film directed by Danny Boyle (Oscar-winner for Slumdog Millionaire). Starring Alex Etel, Lewis McGibbon, and James Nesbitt. The screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce adapted his novel 'Millions'. John Murphy provides memorable fantasy-music for the film - which, in my opinion, is the wonderful piece of work and spirit to be composed for this tender movie.
7-year-old Damian (Alex) is a devout Catholic school boy, he movies with his father and older brother Anthony to new suburb after the death of his mother. Damien finds bag of money flung from a passing train. Damian informs his brother it. Damien being religious and kind wants to help poor people, while Anthony wants the money all to himself.
Danny Boyale's Millions is all what the term 'million - money' be about. It's precise in educating the immediate European struggle to conversion of central money into Euros, especially in the Britain. Poor people in need of the money, the charities and far-flung communities in the Africa, desperate for clean-water. In Millions director Boyale briefly lets the audience hear famous British show 'Who Want's To Be A Millionaire' (a show over which he would ultimately make his Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire - as well as best Director Oscar award).
Entire cast is charming and bubbly, they delve into plot. Religiously movie should not be a universal-phenomenon for non-Catholic but the message of the movie is no doubt universal-perspective; to care for one another, and look after poor people and to have human feelings toward each other.
