Best Supporting Actor Oscar-nominee Dev Patel (SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, 'The Newsroom') helms LION, inspired by the true, touching, and ultimately uplifting story of an Australian man who finds his long-lost family in India - with the help of Google Earth. Nominated for a whopping six Oscars (including Best Picture), LION also stars Best Supporting Actress nominee Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara.
Five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of Kilometers across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.
"LION is a beautifully told, uplifting story of courage and determination." (Chicago Sun Times)
"LION is a complex movie, with its profound themes of home and identity, and its tonally disparate halves. A smartly understated approach to Brierley's story holds it all together." (The Washington Post)
