-story behind the film

We also look at Slumdog Millionaire as an excellent British film and an example of home-grown high-quality cinema. We are interested in how this film fits within the context of British cinema as a whole.

The British film industry was for a long time considered negligible. It has been said that cinema and the UK were a contradiction in terms. Its steady decline, reaching its lowest in the 1970s, has been blamed on competition from television.

In the 1990s there were encouraging signs of a rise in British film production. A steady increase in the number of films Britain produced is evident since the mid 1980s. With major successes in the recent years of films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill there seems to be an emerging trend for British cinema. Ironically it would seem television, so blamed for the death of British cinema, is now perceived in some corners as presenting a positive contribution to this trend. Channels affiliated with Sky and Channel 4 are testament to the presentation of film on television.

Slumdog Millionaire is an excellent film and we hope you enjoy reading about it on this website.
