The two cheeky brothers in The Crow’s Egg, a funny and charming film.

Dubbed the next Slumdog Millionaire, The Crow’s Egg is a funny and charming film from South India.

This is a crowd pleaser for young and old alike and it will be on at Casula Powerhouse this weekend as part of the 2015 Sydney Film Festival.

Two mischievous and resourceful brothers live in poverty in a Chennai slum but find joy in each other and their family and friends.

When the brothers see an advertisement for pizza, which coincides with the opening of a nearby pizza shop, they are determined to taste this magical food for the very first time.

So begins a great adventure, with triumphs and setbacks, as the industrious brothers try to raise the cash to fund their wish.

With delightful performances and a vibrant energy, The Crow’s Egg is both a simple fable and a poignant reflection on globalisation and aspiration.
