Lion


Lion

Brothers Saroo (Sunny Pawar) and Guddu (Abhishek Bharate) return to their village in "Lion."

Starring: Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Sunny Pawar
Directed by: Garth Davis (debut)
Written by: Luke Davies (“Candy”)

The most emotionally-satisfying film this year comes in the way of the true story of Saroo (Sunny Pawar), a five-year-old boy from a remote village in India who becomes lost after he boards a train that takes him across the country for two days. Adopted and now an adult living Australia, Saroo (Dev Patel) makes it his mission to find his biological family 20 years later. Far from manipulative or melodramatic as some cynics may say, the heart-wrenching film is tender, sincere and will definitely be a hard watch for anyone who has ever lost a child or parent. Don’t let the likely tears keep you away though. Everyone needs a good cry every once in a while.

Grade: B+
