Millions is a 2004 film by Danny Boyle. Danny Boyle was, up until that point, known for Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and to a lesser extent, Shallow Grave.So it's something of an understatement to say that Millions was a noticeable diversion in his career, as it's (ostensibly) a Kid's movie with strong Religious themes. The story concerns a young boy, Damian, who recently lost his mother. He daydreams about the Saints in a cardboard castle. When a train robbery results in a falling bag of cash landing near him, he and his older brother, Anthony, have to decide what to do with it. Anthony wants to spend it on luxuries for himself. Damian wants to use it to help the poor. As the plot moves forward, Anthony and Damian's widowed father and the train robber looking for his missing loot get involved.The film, despite a young cast and a bright aesthetic, deals with some fairly heavy issues; greed, religion, grief, altruism, morality and the cynicism of adulthood.
