'Millions' (UK Release: 2004) // Words: Saam Das
SYNOPSIS: "Heart-warming fantasy adventure starring James Nesbitt and Daisy Donovan. A suitcase of cash lands miraculously at a young boy's feet, the day before the UK switches to the euro." (bbc.co.uk)
I haven't enjoyed Danny Boyle's recent directorial efforts (namely '127 Hours' and 'Slumdog Millionaire' - both unpleasant caricatures, in different ways) but the likes of 'Sunshine' and 'Millions' fill me with wonderment. Not that 'Millions' initially amazed me but its quietly charm is perfect for this festive season.
'Millions' is available to watch on BBC iPlayer until 00:59, 24 Dec '11. Purchase on DVD at amazon.co.uk.
