Couldn't agree more with the lady who panned Slumdog at the end of the Culture Show. Great packaging of a very weak formulaic and cheesy yarn. Best picture of the year - never.

I think that he stresses the scriptwriter rather than the author of the original novel so people don't expect a really faithful adaptation.I wouldn't worry, however, most things I've seen online mention that the film is based on Q&A by Vikas Swarup, so I think he's getting credit.

Worse still, they spoke as though Danny Boyle or the writer of the screenplay were the originators of the Slumdog Millionaire story.

I was at university with him and he was always a good laugh as well as being one of the brightest and most creative students. He's also a cracking actor as well as a director. He played opposite me in "Saved" - a very unselfish actor. It was a great experience. I'm really pleased he's having such great success. He deserves it.Rosemary Hill Tue 13 Jan 2009 17:06:45 GMT+1
