Millions (2004)

This is a solid British movie. Seven-year-old Damian (Alex Etel) has visions of dead saints and he considers it a miracle when a bag full of cash lands near him one day. He wants to use the money to help the poor, but his brother Anthony thinks they should spend the money on themselves. They soon learn that the money was actually stolen and a robber breaks into their house trying to find it. Damien tells his father Ronnie (James Nesbitt) about the money, who in response to the damage done at his home, decides to take his family on a spending spree rather than turning it over to the police.

The film was adapted from the 2004 novel written by Frank Boyce. The United Kingdom still uses the pound sterling for its currency. Opinion polls have consistently shown that a majority of citizens do not want to adopt the euro and opposition has been gradually increasing each year.
