WALLA Presents MILLIONS on Monday, December 9 at 6:45 p.m.
When a deeply religious seven-year-old finds a bag of British pounds only a few days before the United Kingdom switches over to the Euro, what is he to do? Determine how many good deeds he can accomplish with it, of course! Unfortunately for Damian, the bank robbers who lost the money have very different ideas regarding the fate of these pounds sterling and they are not going to let their windfall escape without a fight.
Directed by Danny Boyle and adapted from Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Carnegie Medal-winning novel, Millions (2004, 98 minutes, PG-13) will be presented by WALLA on Monday, December 9 at 6:45 p.m.
