I heard about this movie from a couple people — that it was great — but I really knew very little about it. Just the high level story of a boy who wins “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” and then the look back into his life about why and how. But I had no idea beyond that, and I won’t divulge more here. Let me just say that it was a very good movie, and if you have not heard of it, don’t let that hold you back from going to see it!
I actually didn’t decide to see it until about 9 p.m. while finishing dinner in Old Town VA, and then I had quite a hike plus tram ride to get to the theater for the 9:50 showing. It finished up around midnight, and I then had a 40 min hike across Alexandria and Old Town to my hotel. I could have jumped into a hotel and gotten a cab, but that is a pretty safe area, and I love to walk.
