It's great the 'Slum' kids get to go to the party

Despite being unconvinced that Slumdog Millionaire really merits the feel-good tag that it seems to have picked up, there was one undeniably heart warming piece of news about the film this week.

The fact that two of the children who star in it, real life residents of the Mumbai slums, will be attending the Oscars ceremony. Rubina Ali and Azharuddin Ismail, who are both under ten, will be joining their castmates in LA apparently.

A nice treat - but even better is the thought that they're also getting an education, as apparently they're now both enrolled in school with the film's director Danny Boyle and its producers picking up the tab.
