A very well-done film, based on a true story, about a 5 year old boy who gets lost in India, somehow survives on the streets for a few years, before being adopted by an Australian couple. When he grows up, he uses Google Earth to painstakingly search for his family in India. Dev Patel is very good as the adult Saroo, as expected. But the actor who portrays the young Saroo is amazing!
American Idol with animals! I spent a good part of the movie trying to guess how the film-makers were going to pull off a happy ending for all the contestants instead of having winners and losers. You’ll just have to watch the movie to see how they pulled if off, because that ending made up for the slow beginning and some breaks in the story continuity. Temper your expectations and you’ll enjoy the movie.
How do you handle losing a child? By writing letters to Love, Time, and Death. This drama is very well-written, with a fantastic cast delivering fantastic performances. And see if you can guess the ending. Definitely worth watching.
