Oscar-Winning Director Boyle Prepping 'Guiltolympics' Opening Ceremony

Oscar-Winning Director Boyle Prepping 'Guiltolympics' Opening Ceremony

Kyle Smith of The New York Post

The July 27 ceremony, conceived by Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” and “Trainspotting” director Danny Boyle, will pay careful attention to Britain’s shame, with tableaux devoted to the denial of voting rights to women, Industrial Revolution pollution, the Great Depression and exploitation of the workers.

Instead of celebrating Nelson and Wellington, the show will feature scary soldiers “erupting” out of the ground like lava. A centerpiece will be a reenactment of a 200-mile 1936 workers’ march from the North to London to protest living conditions.

“Brideshead Revisited,” this ain’t. Call it Painspotting.
