Best Movie — Slumdog Millionaire

There are a lot of movies to see this holiday and Oscar season. My highest recommendation is to go see Slumdog Millionaire. The story of a young boy’s tragic life which accidentally prepares him for the questions on a game show is a brilliant underdog story filled with director artistry that you seldom see in any film. Because the movie deals with a boy growing up in the worst parts of India the movie teaches the audience valuable cultural lessons and insights at the same time entertaining us.

    Recommendation seconded with the following political footnote: As you watch this film, or afterward, and in terms of public policy, think about India, its vast numbers of people, and the energy and determination of these peoples living at the bottom of the economic pyramid to improve their lives. This movie, for me, captured and portrayed that energy.

    I write often about the rise of China and suggest how Oregon should respond. Well, India is also rising. Both are parts of the rise of Asia. This movement of hundreds of millions of people from poverty to middle class is the revolution now taking place across our globe. It is the historic event of our time. It will shape the lives of Oregon’s next generations in ways we cannot predict. See the film, thinks about how that energy is changing the world, and tell our Oregon politicians to invigorate our world language programs in the K-12 educational system and to pass a High School Study Abroad Scholarship Program in the 2009 session. Oregon should have tens, if not hundreds, of high school student studying abroad in India each year.
