* DirectorDisplacement: This film had two credited directors (Creator/DannyBoyle and Loveleen Tandan) but Boyle got all the credit. Reportedly, Tandan directed much of the flashback sequences with Boyle while all of the present day scenes were done by Boyle himself. Tandan also was a casting director on the film.
