A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
The story follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he's attracted. While he's resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.
I saw this when it screened in Toronto in the fall of 2011 and I completely LOVED it! Adam Sinclair and Kristin Kruek are so great as a somewhat shallow clubber who meets a lonely, married woman looking for a bit of excitement. They have perfect chemistry as they try to understand this new albeit different relationship. Billy Boyd is incredible as always and he manages to steal every scene he is in! One particular incredible scene is one in the hospital, you'll know it when you see it! Absolutely genius!!
Great direction, perfect music, incredible acting and another fine story by Mr. Welsh. This gritty, funny, saucy and endearing film is bound to become another cult favorite along side Trainspotting Whatever you do, do not miss this one!
