Just my opinion, but there are two things that are must-see. One is the photography exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery and the other is a movie.

Last weekened we went to see “Portraits of Power,” a collection of the late Richard Avedon’s photographs at the Corcoran Gallery of Art (last day is Sunday, January 25). We also took in “Slumdog Millionaire.” Reviews and information at One Photograph A Day:

  1. I saw Slumdog Millionaire today. Boyle has really done a good job with this movie. While the movie deals with the gory details of the underbelly of Mumbai, it doesnt really leave you with a sick feeling. The story feels like a commentary and at the end you just feel good about the whole movie. Very well done I must say.

    The music score by Rehman is amazing, the actors who played junior Jamal and Salim were the real stars. They were simply too good. Freida Pinto had just 15 mins of screen presence. I think she was overhyped.
