Millions

Faith, love, and filthy lucre propel this 2004 British feature, a richly comic fable set on the eve of the currency change from the pound to the euro. Pint-size Damian (charmer Alex Etel) chats up the saints he adores, hoping one will bring news of his departed mum. When a duffel bag stuffed with cash falls out of the blue, the boy's imagination and generous impulses set him at odds with his mercenary older brother, who believes charity should begin—and stay—at home. Director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) brings a visual inventiveness and light touch to Frank Cottrell Boyce's deft screenplay, making this the most gleeful movie about a single-minded kid since A Christmas Story. PG-13, 97 min.
