Danny Boyle honored at London Film Festival
HollywoodNews.com: Director Danny Boyle has been made a BFI fellow at the London Film Festival.
The filmmaker’s new movie ‘127 Hours’ will be closing the festival on October 28 and Boyle, 54, who directed ‘Slumdog Millionaire,’ said he feels like ‘the runt of the litter’ of those who have previously become fellows. His new movie follows the true story of Aron Ralston, the mountaineer who had to amputate his own arm after being trapped by a boulder on his own in the Utah desert.
Speaking about the picking up the British Film Institute’s top prize, he said: “There’s a lot of very prestigious people have had this award and I’m quite happy to be the runt of the litter. Every litter needs a runt and I’m quite happy to be that amongst them, following in their footsteps.”
