Hat-making your way out of poverty

Last week, a film came out here in the UK which, despite technically being a UK production by most criteria, has been out for a while in several places around the world (most notably the USA, whose public acclamation precedes it here).

The film features a television game show from which it would appear that hat-making is a popular (but no less competitive) route out of poverty in India.

Or am I misunderstanding the show's catch-phrase title of Who Wants to Be A Milliner? ;-) (At least that's the way it sounds when Anil Kapoor says it!)

Slumdog Millionaire

(For the record, I recommend Slumdog Millionaire very heartily)
