An amazing true story starring Dev Patel. Five year old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India. Saroo must learn to survive alone, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories and an unwavering determination, he sets out to find his lost family.
“Lion represents a commitment from those involved and, flaws aside, it’s an amazing tale of resilience and determination.” – ReelViews
“Be prepared to cry — a lot — at this wonderfully cast tearjerker about a man who searched for his birth family across a continent, with only decades-old memories to guide him.” – Common Sense Media
“An astonishing true story that’s treated with an admirably light and artistic touch, rather than an overly dramatic heavy hand. Despite a weaker second half, it is ultimately deeply moving.” – Empire
