It doesn't happen often, but when it does, look out: a movie that rocks and rolls, that transports, startles, delights, shocks, seduces. A movie that is, quite simply, great. Slumdog Millionaire , the epic yarn of a Mumbai street urchin who grows up and goes on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - and then keeps getting the answers right, one stunner after another - is that movie. It's exhilarating. It's life-affirming. (Am I gushing enough?) It's about true love and destiny, about raging poverty and vast wealth, about the global powerhouse that is India in the 21st century.

LOS ANGELES - Nine women were honored at the annual Women in Hollywood event, yet two in particular stole the show. Viola Davis surprised her fellow honorees and an audience of Hollywood insiders Monday night by announcing she had adopted a baby girl. And Barbra Streisand was repeatedly credited by fellow honorees such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Evan Rachel Wood, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, and Davis with being the inspiration for their success. It was a lovefest that continued through the evening at the 18th annual celebration of the industry's leading ladies sponsored by Elle magazine at the Four Seasons Hotel.

What a fabulous idea, to transpose Tess of the D'Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy's tale of manners and morals in 19th-century England - to modern-day India. The trip from Hardy's fictional Wessex to Rajasthan and Mumbai - where class mobility, tradition, and globalization clash with dizzying vividness - presents a tantalizing opportunity to infuse the classic with new verve, color, and relevance. In the case of Trishna, the enterprise is even more promising because it has been written and directed by Michael Winterbottom, one of the most protean and inventive filmmakers working today (and one who knows his way around Hardy, having adapted The Mayor of Casterbridge and Jude the Obscure )

Any film as politically specific as Miral needs to be addressed on two levels, as a movie and as, from a certain viewpoint, a polemic. If a viewer can separate one from the other - and some may not - there's an intense, novelistic drama here. In 1948 Palestine, following the implementing of the United Nations' two-state solution, social worker Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass) takes in 55 Palestinian orphans displaced by military action. Almost by accident, she starts a girls' orphanage and school.

LOS ANGELES - Beneath a crystal chandelier, Dev Patel ponders budget car-buying. The 22-year-old actor, clad in a soft cotton V-neck T, relaxed jeans, and dirt-scuffed green sneakers, surveys two publicists, a photographer, and a photographer's assistant at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons. "How much do you pay for car insurance? How much do you pay?" Patel, who earned his driver's license in London last year, has cruised Los Angeles for months in a rented Toyota Corolla while costarring as blogger Neal Sampat in Aaron Sorkin's latest creation, The Newsroom , which ends its much-discussed first season on HBO on Sunday.

THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS has named Samuel L. Jackson the highest-grossing actor of all time. Since Jackson debuted in Spike Lee 's "Jungle Fever" in 1991, his 100 movies have made more than $7.4 billion. The Hollywood Reporter says "Jurassic Park" ($914 million), "Pulp Fiction" ($212 million) and the "Star Wars" prequels ($2.4 billion) were big contributors to the record. Tattle's box office guru David Bleiler says the record is a little misleading because Jackson wasn't the star of many of the films in question.
