Saw Slumdog Millionare last night at the Esquire. It was terrific. I would give it the Oscar for best adapted screenplay (it's based on a book called Q & A). The way the movie was told was fascinating. Parts of it were very difficult to watch; I would definitely call it gut-wrenching. I won't say too much about it because I don't want to spoil anything.
We capped-off the night with Chicken and Lamb Vindaloo at Ambar in Clifton.
I'll do an Oscars preview when the nominations are announced, so check back for that. We typically see all of the best picture nominations, but don't know if we'll make it this year.
