ABOUT:

Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman star in the true story of Saroo Brierley, who was adopted by an Australian couple after being separated from his family in India at the age of five, and then located his original home using Google Earth 25 years later. Adapted from Brierley's own book, A Long Way Home, by screenwriter Luke Davies, LION is directed by Garth Davis. Precocious five-year-old Saroo Khan, separated from his older brother Guddu on a train platform in their native Madhya Pradesh, ends up nearly a thousand miles away in Calcutta. Homeless in a strange city where he doesn't speak the language, Saroo gets by on his street smarts until he is taken in by a government orphanage. When an Australian couple adopts him, he is taken to live with them in Tasmania. It's not until Saroo leaves that island as a young Australian man that he begins to wonder what became of his first home and the family he so adored. Ingeniously using satellite images, he finds a lead to follow up on. But the search for Saroo's past threatens to overwhelm his present, and he finds himself further adrift than he ever imagined possible. This remarkable journey shows us how home transcends borders and family transcends blood.
