A film by Stephen Daldry
Cast: Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura
3 kids who lives by garbage dumps work there to and picks up plastic anything that is plastic and put it in a trash bag to be recycled. They are from Brazil. one of them makes a stunning discovery a wallet full of cash. Little did they know that their lives are about to change.
Here is a film in the style of Slumdog millionaire. It is from Andy Mulligan’s novel. Here is a director who has it right. He went to the poor neighborhood in Brazil and told the story as is. It is center on the kids that lives in poverty and their acting was flawless and for a kid this has to be hard work to be almost in every frame of the movie. They are kids who have no education nor future. Politician who are corrupt not helping the poor, than you have the police who is corrupt also that does not help. In brazil I was told that there is a corrupted politicians. So the poor on one side and the rich on the other. Nobody cares for the poor. There is a sense of hope in the movie which is nice. Outstanding for the acting for the kids, as well as Martin Sheen. The tension is there and continue during the film continuously. The suspense runs throughout the film also. It could be more realistic but it is entertaining no doubt. I do not want to say more than that just in case you didn’t see the film. It is a fine piece of film with a good ending.
