Winner of the 2017 BAFTA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Dev Patel)

Based on an incredible true story

Lion follows Saroo, an Indian boy who becomes separated from his family and ends up halfway around the world. His adopted parents (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) welcome him with open arms, and Saroo starts to settle into Australian life. While Saroo appears to fit in at his uni course, he can't ignore the desire to find his birth family.

But the place Saroo's family lived in doesn't seem to exist. Tensions start to simmer within his family, and the pressure to find his mother reaches breaking point.

Is Saroo chasing the impossible, or edging closer to finding the truth?

After all the noise made about this movie I found it rather disappointing and that could be because they did make a lot of noise round the release date - lets see what you think?
