Below is one of the movies I’ve watched over the years that I’d like to share with my website’s visitors (along with Books, Songs and TV Shows) which you can buy or rent on Amazon by clicking on the image below.
The movie Lion, directed by Garth Davis and starring Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman, is based on the true story of a young Indian boy who gets lost at the age of five. Also be sure to check out Slumdog Millionaire (which Patel starred in as well). Like Slumdog Millionaire, Lion was nominated for several Oscars, but, unlike Slumdog Millionaire, won none of them.
In true Hollywood fashion, the story gets sexed up in the telling, but Kidman for one is charmingly faithful in her portrayal of Patel’s adoptive mother.
