Millions

Cyndi Lauper was right: money changes everything. In this genre change-up for director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), a black bag with a Nike logo on it—and more than 200,000 English pounds in it—not only gives the athletic company a shameless plug, but also takes the characters’ personalities to their extremes. While playing in his fort of moving boxes, the bagful of bucks falls from the sky and into the unsuspecting arms of a naïve and benevolent boy ironically named Damian. In between magical talks with Catholic Saints, he gives the money away in bundles to strangers, making authorities suspicious and his older brother furious. The domineering sibling scorns Damian’s generosity while he uses the money to buy real estate and popularity. Soon, the unlawful owners of the stolen loot come to threaten the two kids, and the countdown to the day when all British currency is converted to the Euro (aka. "E Day") seems to speed up. Because of the endearing performance of young Alex Etel and the creative camera work of Boyle, Millions is a winner.
