On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
7/85 Kim Hollis A heartwarming look at the wonder and fears in childhood. Simply whimsical.
15/166 David Mumpower The Passion of the Christ got all the hype, but Millions is a more profound treatise on the nature of faith coupled with the struggles true believers face in modern times.
17/60 Les Winan It's a nice, heartwarming fable that leaves a couple of questions unanswered. Like how that kid's freckles are so big.
54/125 Dan Krovich Constant nagging feeling that I should have been enjoying it more.

After such flicks as Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach and 28 Days Later, director Danny Boyle takes on the children’s film genre with this caper involving two young brothers from Liverpool.

Anthony, aged nine, and Damian, a seven-year-old, are still recovering from the all-too-recent death of their mother. They find themselves stumbling upon a sack of cash in the amount of £229,320, but learn that the money has come from a bank robbery. Complicating matters even more, the cash is in pounds sterling, and the pair has only one weekend to spend it before the Euro comes to England and the money is worthless.

The stark realism of the story turns somewhat mystical, though. Damian is visited by saints such as Joseph and Francis of Assisi who tell him stories that he uses as a guide to living his life.

Boyle describes the project, which comes from a screenplay written by 24 Hour Party People’s Frank Cottrell Boyce as “Transpotting meets Amelie.” It’s a film that sounds fanciful and intriguing, indeed. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
