Based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, LION was adapted for the screen by Luke Davies from Saroo�s autobiography �A Long Way Home�. At the age of five, Saroo was lost on a train which took him thousands of kilometers across India, away from home and family. Saroo survived alone on the streets of Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by Tasmanian couple, Sue and John Brierley. Twenty five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and the revolutionary technology Google Earth, he set out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.
Reviews: "Kudos to Kidman, whose unglam, unguarded take on the role is emotionally powerful and true; her scenes with Patel provide just the right blend of grit and grace. Lion is one from the heart." – Peter Travers, Rolliing Stone
"Loss and belonging are the themes of this incredible true story; it is the simplicity of the storytelling that brings it to life. Most crucial is the establishment of the Indian reality" – Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
