MULTI-OSCAR winning smash Slumdog Millionaire (15) bursts onto the Hollywood Cinema screen in Lowestoft this week.

The film won eight Oscars in the glittering Academy Awards on Sunday night, including best picture and best director for Danny Boyle.

It tells the story of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai. Jarnal is just one question away from winning 20 million rupees on India's “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” when the show breaks for the night.

But his hopes of a relaxing evening before the biggest day of his life are shattered when police arrest him on suspicion of cheating. Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious encounters with local gangs, and of Latika (Freida Pinto), the girl he loved and lost, with each chapter revealing the answer to one of the show's questions.

However one question remains - what is this young man with no apparent desire for riches really doing on the game show?
