You have some big decisions to make.

HBO is holding some aces for April’s slate of programming. We’re finally seeing the return of hit shows The LeftoversVeep, and Silicon Valley, and there’s a fresh crop of great movies to check out.

From classic films to bold new series premieres and documentaries, there’s something for everyone.

New on HBO (April 2017): Editor’s pick

Slumdog Millionaire

Critically acclaimed but considered a sleeper hit at the time of its release, Slumdog Millionaire earned an incredible eight Academy Awards in 2009—including best picture and best director—and it feels more timely than ever. Sweeping in scope and beautifully told, the film, which was shot entirely in India, tells the heartbreaking story of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an 18-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who incredibly finds himself one question away from winning India’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire? But his journey to that point there is far more important and revealing than his potential payout.
