A genuinely touching story of tenacity and hope brought to screen from Saroo Brierley's autobiographical book A Long Way Home, Lion is the debut feature of Garth Davis. The impressive Dev Patel plays Brierley, who is separated tragically from his family at five years old and forced to roam the streets of Kolkata alone, before being adopted by an family who raise him back in Australia. Twenty-five years pass and all the while, with just a handful of memories and internet maps to guide him, his search goes on to find his mother.
