Slum Dog Millionaire
Original post made by Sandra Ryan, Vineyard Hills, on Jan 30, 2009
Just a warning -- Slum Dog Millionaire is not the feel-good movie that the advertising leads you to believe. For those of us who are sensitive and faint of heart, especially when it involves violence to children, be prepared when you consider seeing the new award winning film. It is shockingly violent. There are imagines that will probably come back to mind for many years, just as the shower scene in Psycho brings up lasting memories for many. I was traumatized by the violence and did not sleep all night. A few couples walked out. I just want to share my story, so others will not be caught off guard.
