John & Becky’s Movie Review of Lion

Becky and I went to see the new movie Lion last week at the AMC theater in Highlands Ranch, CO.  The Fandango website at Lion describes the movie as follows…

“In this adaptation of the memoir A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley, a five-year-old Indian boy is adopted by an Australian couple after he gets lost in Calcutta. Years later, he struggles with his memories of his birth family, and decides to begin a search for them…”

The Review:  Lion is an amazing true story that takes place in India where a young boy goes to work with his older brother.  After his brother doesn’t show up, the boy, who is about five years old gets on a train that takes him close to 1,200 miles away to another part of India where they speak a different language.

The film takes you through his experience into the unknown as a child and as he grows older.  The movie will really make you think and it’s an incredible story of courage, love and determination,  The acting and directing is good and even features Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman.

This is one of those Independent films that should win plenty of awards because it’s so well done.  The story is fantastic and I don’t know anyone who hasn’t enjoyed seeing it yet.  Definitely put it on your list for this year.

We really liked it and thought it was definitely a don’t miss it.
