6 of 8
Sleeper hit Slumdog Millionaire is up for 10 Oscars® this year, including Best Picture. "Don't let the title throw you off," Oprah says. "If you are ready to be swept away by one of the most original love stories of the year—one of the most original love stories we've ever seen—you must give yourself the gift of Slumdog Millionaire."

Set in the slums of Mumbai, India, Slumdog Millionaire is the unlikely tale of Jamal, an uneducated orphan who lands himself in the hot seat of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. As he makes his way toward the game show's million-dollar prize, the story of how Jamal knew the answers begins to unravel. "How he knew the answers is the magic of this tale and what makes this film just brilliant," Oprah says.
