Slumdog Millionaire

Focus on the trailer

The trailer is also an essential part of the marketing of a film, consisting of both visual and sound elements. Watch the trailer and at the end try to decide what the film is about, what key elements of the film are being stressed and what you think the final outcome of the film might be. What 'narrative enigmas' are given, what questions raised by the trailer that we want answered (and can only be answered by seeing the film itself.)?

After watching the whole film write your own synopsis for Slumdog Millionaire. It will appear in the UK media. Pay close attention to the word count (look at the example on the synopsis page) and think carefully about your choice of language.
