Lion is a true story about a young boy named Saroo Brierley who at 5yrs old got lost from his family in rural India and placed in an orphanage and eventually adopted by a couple in Australia. After 20 yrs he is reunited with his mother and sister.Dev Patels performance is outstanding! You really feel that he’s a man who is struggling to find out who he really is and where he really came from. While watching this movie it made me go through a ton of emotions! I felt sad, scared, worried, horrified, happy, grateful, and then overjoyed. I definitely recommend everyone see this movie. It’s a touching true story that I’m sure most people have never heard of before. It is very touching and will take you on an emotional roller coaster.
I give this movie a 9 out of 10!
