In the film, hypnosis plays a big role in the story, and as the "ecstasy" progresses, the line between reality and dream blurs.

Children look like actors in a professional movie. The story of the film, though refreshing, does not strike you, because it manages very well to maintain its own character and strangeness and not to go to extremes. "Millions" is a cinematic genre that Danny Boyle should be more than that, it is clear that he really enjoys this positive and warm tone.

Boyle goes here to the astonishing life of Steve Jobs, the co-founder and mastermind behind Apple, who died of cancer in 2011.
Although the film sometimes becomes ordinary and sometimes boring But he survives thanks to Michael Fassbender's brilliant performance as Jobs and Kate Winslet as Apple's marketing director Joanna Hoffman.

Danny Boyle entered the cinema with "Shallow Tomb", but it was with "Discovery" that he became a prominent director in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The film is the story of a worthless and lowly group of young people in Edinburgh. The extraordinary cast of the main actors of the film later became famous stars.
