It's the movie Warner Bros. didn't want to distribute. And now everybody else wishes they had a piece of "Slumdog Millionaire." The Internet is filled with Oscar-obsessed pundits preoccupied by the tiniest bits of awards trivia and Academy Award prognostications.

The makers of the hit movie "Slumdog Millionaire" have bought a new home for one of the two child stars discovered in Mumbai's slums. Both children lost their homes last month when authorities demolished parts of their slum here. The purchase of a 250-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment for the family of Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, 10, was completed Monday, said Nirja Mattoo, who helps oversee the Jai Ho trust set up by the filmmakers to help Azharuddin and his 9-year-old costar, Rubina Ali.

The child stars of the Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" returned to India on Thursday to a chaotic but rousing heroes' welcome. Hundreds of well-wishers waited for them at the Mumbai airport, where dozens of police, some heavily armed, were needed to escort the children through the cheering crowds. The film, a rags-to-riches tale set in Mumbai's slums, was the darling of the Academy Awards, winning eight Oscars on Sunday, including the award for best picture. The four children came out with arms around one another's shoulders.

Danny Boyle has shown an affinity for switching genres, and Nov. 12's "Slumdog Millionaire" couldn't possibly be more different from the English director's last film, the sci-fi "Sunshine."

Opening Friday and running through Labor Day, the Telluride Film Festival is best known for its eclectic (some would say erratic) programming philosophy, which not only keeps its film schedule secret until hours before the first screenings but also will pick some movies that require such audience fortitude (such as this year's 11-language, 5 1/2–hour "Carlos") that, no matter how critically acclaimed, inevitably will not travel far past a festival setting. But when Telluride's programmers select a certain kind of director-driven movie for a world premiere — not that the festival would ever use the p-word to describe a first screening — the audience reaction can be a particularly accurate predictor of how the film will be received in the rest of the country's art houses.

We shopped. Then we dropped. Then we started making culture again -- dancing on the rubble of our own excesses, stitching together art from the ragbag of our desires. Every generation or so, throughout modern American history, the culture of hardship has followed hard on the heels of the culture of consumption and prosperity.
