When life is being told that powerfully on the blue screen, there’s a meaningful and transformational shift that takes place within our soul. We feel every hurt, every tribulation and trial that our on-screen character is going through. We feel with him. We weep when he is being hurt with injustice and simply by not knowing life as it is.

LION movie will leave you breathless at the end, as you will transform alongside with your hero who has gone from one side of the world to the other and then back again.

The ensemble of actors and actresses is stellar. Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Rooney Mara (The Girl with teh Dragon Tattoo), David Wenham (300), Nicole Kidman (Academy Award® winner for The Hours) and newcomers Abhishek Bharate and Sunny Pawar.

The film is based on a true story of a five-year-old boy Saroo (Sunny Pawar) who lives in the slums of India with his family. One day he gets lost and finds his way to the house in Australia. But between that moment and his happy days with his own family, the boy had to live through nightmares and hardships that a child was put through life’s circumstances.

As an adult, not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, Saroo (Dev Patel) suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. Armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, Saroo sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.

You will chuckle and laugh at times how Saroo was googling for his lost home in India. But remember, it was in the very early days of Google! The writers and directors infused the movie with good humor and warm feelings to showcase the life in all of its expressions.

You will love this movie. We watched it with our elementary school kids, and they weeped and felt and expressed compassion like a child only could express. It was priceless to be by their side and share that movie moment with them.
