Slumdog Millionaire

It's official, I'm the world's biggest cynic. I did not like this film.
In a word: H O K E Y*. Almost unbearably so by its conclusion.

Born Into Brothels is much, much better.

*hok⋅ey [hoh-kee] – adjective hok⋅i⋅er, hok⋅i⋅est.
1. cloyingly sentimental; mawkish.
2. obviously contrived, esp. to win popular appeal or support; phony.
