Lion is one of the most anticipated releases of the year, having won the Audience Award at film festivals including Toronto. A boy lost in Calcutta is adopted by a kind couple in Australia (played by Nicole Kidman and David Wenham). As The Hollywood Reporter noted, “A tremendously moving performance from Dev Patel is the resilient soul of Lion, the incredible true story of Saroo Brierley and his tenacious quest to find the family from whom he was separated 25 years earlier.”
