Millions Synopsis - Millions centres around a seven year old boy Damian, his slightly older brother, Anthony, and their father, Ronnie. The boys mother has died previously and Damian has increasingly retreated into a fantasy land where he has visions of saints and religious figures who talk to him and guide him. One day when he is out playing by some railway tracks a a bag containing "millions" of pounds seemingly drops out of the sky. Damian takes the bag falling from the sky as a sign from god that he should use the money to help the poor people, but he must be quick as in a few days the pound will cease to be legal tender in favour of the euro. So Damian and his brother set out on a mission to get rid of it all. Unfortunately the money didn't fall out of the sky, it was thrown from a train by a gang of crooks that were robbing the bullion carriage on the train, and now they want the money back.

Review of Millions - Millions is a superb film that everyone should see. With a film that deals with the innocence and simple moral judgments that children make it would be very easy to turn it into a schmaltzy and sickly sweet tale, thankfully that has been skillfully avoided here. The storyline is first class and brilliantly played by the two youngsters here. Also Danny Boyle is the master of imaginative and quirky storytelling, so we get a story that is practically a fable being presented in an ultra- modern and a visually very impressive way. It is also a very genuine and emotionally touching tale.
The reasons I recommend Millions are: 1. A superb story. 2. Fantastic direction of the tale by Danny Boyle. 3. Superb performances of the two young brothers.
