LION, sponsored in Memory of THE ORCHID MAN
"Based on a true story, brought to the screen by Luke Davis (Life), the story follows Saroo (Sunny Pawar), a five-year-old Indian boy, who, after loosing sight of his older brother, gets lost on the busy streets of Calcutta thousands of miles from home. Saroo is soon picked up by the social services, and is adopted by Australian couple John and Sue Brierly (David Wenham and Nicole Kidman), and taken to their homeland to start a new life. Fast-forward 25 years later, and the now fully-grown Saroo (now played by Dev Patel), moves to Melbourne and to university there to study hotel management. There he meets Lucy (Rooney Mara), and almost immediately falls in love. However, Saroo cannot get thoughts of his real family our of his head, and uses the latest technology (Google Earth) to try and piece together the tiny details of his origins from his memory in an attempt to find where he really comes from, and hopefully find his long-lost family.
This one is highly recommended."
