BOOK NOWThis Oscar nominated film tells the true story of five-year-old Saroo who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India. He survives alone on the streets of Calcutta where he is eventually adopted by a family and taken to live with them in Australia. Then, at the age of 25 and with just a few memories of his childhood, he determines to find his family and return to his first home.

 

‘A deeply empathetic performance from Dev Patel and an unflinching view of child poverty on the streets of Calcutta provide a winning edge to Lion.’

Kevin Maher, Times
