CAE sample answer
Slumdog Millionaire is a drama film which was directed by Danny Boyle. The story shows the hard life of the poor people in India. The main characters are two brothers – Jamal and Sulim, and a girl Latika. The two boys don’t have a father and their mother is killed when they are about 4-5. Then an unfamiliar man finds them, begins to take care of them and a couple of other orphans, among whom is Latika. They are soon compelled to do things, they don’t want to and find a way to run away. But the story doesn’t end here, the 3 children begin to earn their living differently, only 3 of them get to know bad people and start to do illegal things. The most interesting thing about the film is that the story is presented through the TV show” Who wants to be a millionaire? “. Jamal answers all the questions thanks to his wide experience, which amazes everyone.
This incredible film shows us how different and hard some lives can be. It acquaints us with the culture if a distant country – India. We start to be more concerned about the situation in such countries. When watching this movie people start to ask themselves. “Can this really be? Are there such people?”

“Slumdog Millionaire” is a movie worth considering, I strongly recommend it to everyone. It is a memorable film, which you will discuss with your friends and family for a long time.
