MILLIONS

Millions is a really wonderful picture by the guy who made "Trainspotting" and "28 Days Later." Making a movie about children is every movie-maker's nightmare I imagine, but Boyle gets the tone right and packs in plenty of subtle humor. Once St. Clare sparks a spliff you know it's going to be good.

St. Clare is played by Kathryn Pogson, who I guess has worked a lot in UK Television, but if you're a fan of "Brazil" she was the girl in orthodontic headgear who Sam is forced to have dinner with in the restaurant with the pictures of food.
