Film Kicks presents ‘Lion’
Apr 6, 2017 7:30 pm
Lion is a movie based upon the book, A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley. It tells the true story of Saroo himself who, when he was 5 years old, was separated from his family in India, became lost, homeless in the streets of India. Then, after a harrowing journey as he attempted to survive alone, was adopted by an Australian couple and raised in the Australian culture.
Twenty-five years later, after having experienced flashbacks of a loving family he once had, Saroo was able to locate his original home and be reunited with his birth family.
The heart-breakingly moving film stars an international cast including Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara and newcomer, Sunny Pawar. At the 89th Academy Awards, Lion received 6 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Patel), Best Supporting Actress (Kidman) and Best Adapted Screenplay.
