Lion

Powerful and true story

(Edit) 21/11/2017

I had known nothing about this film before I watched it, except that a number of friends had recommended it. It was compelling from the start, as well as having a very authentic feel. I found it incredibly moving, not necessarily in a tearjerky way, but more deeply than that, reflecting as I was on the movement of children across our globe whether voluntarily in search of different lives, or perhaps under circumstances beyond their control. There are so many little lost travelling boys and girls. It was so powerful to witness this one's story, so well told.
