Yesterday saw very good turn outs for both films showing in the Public Hall. The packed hall in the evening featured the magnificent Slumdog Millionaire, winner of eight Oscars, the British made film directed by Danny Boyle.
The film portrays vividly life in the slums and on the streets of Mumbai for youngsters. As a result, information was distributed by a local charity, the Railway Children, that provides assistance for children like those in the film.
Railway Children was formed thirteen years ago by David Maidment of Nantwich and last year provided care and protection to over 12,000 children in India and 3,869 of them were reunited with their families. Whilst the charity was formed primarily to intervene in the lives of children living in India's railway stations, it has since extended its role to Africa and also to homeless and runaway children in the UK. Further information about the charity is available on 01270 757596.
Earlier in the evening, another big film, the Disney animated film, Bolt also proved popular with families. It stars the voices of John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Malcolm McDowell, Claire Holt, and many more. The film revolves around a small white dog named Bolt who, having spent his entire life on the set of a television series, thinks that he has super powers. It was great entertainment for the whole family.
