Director Danny Boyle's Oscar winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire" will be shown on Thursday, April 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Coastal Carolina University's E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration's Auditorium. The film is free and open to the public.
The movie tells the tale of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai who is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' Arrested on suspicion of cheating, he tells the police the incredible story of his life on the streets and of the girl he loved and lost. But what is a kid with no interest in money doing on the show? And how is it he knows all the answers?
After the film, Brian Tracy, assistant director of the Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values, will hold a discussion exploring ethical themes and implications of morality in some of the decisions made by characters in the film.
This event is sponsored by CCU's Office of International Programs and Services.
