Danny Boyle Storbritannien, 2004

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Millions

The screenplay by Cottrell-Boyce is unfocused but occasionally brilliant, creating a child's eye perspective on the issues of poverty & distribution of wealth, while also telling an engaging story about a family rebuilding itself after experiencing grief. Flights of magical realism are imaginative & moving, but too often the subtleties are bludgeoned by Boyle's characteristically flashy & sensationalist direction.
