Saturday February 17: Lion — a 2016 biographical film directed by Garth Davis and written by Luke Davies, based on the non-fiction book A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley with Larry Buttrose. The film stars Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman. In 1986, Saroo, a five-year-old boy, lives with his brother Guddu, his mother and sister in Khandwa, India. Guddu and Saroo steal coal from freight trains to trade for milk and food. One day, Saroo follows his brother to a job and they arrive at a nearby train station, where Saroo decides to stay back and take a nap. Later when Guddu does not return, Saroo gets on the train looking for his brother who is not on board. What follows is a beautiful human story.
