Millions

I don’t make a habit of recommending movies to the EL crowd, but I have to give really high marks to Danny Boyle’s “Millions”.  (Yes, the same director and writer of “Trainspotting” and “28 Days Later”.)

The UK is about to switch its currency from Pounds to Euros, giving a gang a chance to rob the poorly-secured train loaded with money on its way to incineration. But, during the robbery, one of the big bags falls literally from the sky on Damian’s playhouse, a 5-year old given to talking to saints. The boy then starts seeing what the world and the people around him are made of. A very rare film in which ethics, being human and the soul all come to the forefront on this masterly-written, directed and acted, very fun, film. Don’t miss this opportunity to your train to heaven!

That’s how IMDB descibes it. We just loved it and found it to be one of the most original films we have seen in quite some time. Read more.
