Slumdog Millionaire

I highly recommend the Oscar nominated movie Slumdog Millionaire.  It really is quite profound and moving.  I watched it today with a friend and about half way through, I thought to myself, "I really don't want to be here right now" but by the time it was over (and I was pleased with the ending) I was glad I stayed.   It was really stressful to watch, and after evaluating it, we realized that we had undergone every emotion imaginable.  It didn't hit me until about two hours later as I sat and watched the dual meet.  I was exhausted.  The movie and really drained me physically as well as emotionally.  The only other movie I remember doing that to me was Shindler's List.  Doesn't sound much like a blessing now does it?  Well... it is in the fact that it forces you to appreciate the simple things in life that we take for granted.  I.e. food, shelter, clothing, education, faith, family and hope. It's truly a wonderful love story.
