520 |a"Winner of numerous awards and the epicenter of multiple controversies, Danny Boyle's 2008 film "Slumdog Millionaire" has fueled a series of debates regarding its depictions of India and the slum, its references to Bollywood, its global circulation and success, and its reception by critics and audiences. "The 'Slumdog' Phenomenon" is an edited collection that seeks to address all of these topics and, in the process, provide new and innovative ways of looking at this controversial film. Each of the book's four sections considers a particular aspect of the film - such as its relation to the nation, to the slum and to Bollywood - along with its reception and theorization. Collecting, for the first time ever, a wide range of critical essays exploring this film from a rich variety of disciplinary perspectives, "The Slumdog Phenomenon" will be of interest to readers across the academic spectrum. Rather than offering a book-length study of the film from one point of view, this collection presents a variety of shorter pieces that consider "Slumdog Millionaire" from several different angles. Featuring a dynamic combination of landmark essays by leading critics and theorists, as well as newer pieces by emerging scholars, this collection will provide readers with an assortment of critical perspectives on a film that continues to generate fascination, curiosity and controversy around the world."--Publisher's website.
