Super good! Made me want to know more about his story!

Must admit I got a lump in my throat at the conclusion. Well constructed and acted drama. The first half was difficult to watch at times but well worth it in the end.

Lion inspires and captures the viewer with its heart wrenching tale of foster identity, courage, and resilience. Though it has its flaws with some strange acting (would you believe me if I told you young saroo was far more engaging and relatable than his adult counterpart?), the movie triumphs through the irresistible story - made all the more inspirational when you learn it's oh so real.

A Great movie. So touching.

A pretty straight forward too easy guess the ending but its journey is both sad and beautiful. Dev Patel has come a long way.

What a magnificent movie. The fact that it is basically a true story made it even better. I could not stop crying watching the last 20 minutes or so. Dev Patel is amazing! I will watch it again. A must see movie!!!

An emotionally gripping movie about family, roots, compassion and love. Without drifting into cliches. A must-see and probably one of my movies of 2017 so far!!

Wow, there are all sorts of movies made about all sorts of meaningless things that are seen by so many... then there are true stories such as this that truly need to be seen by more people. Just a beautiful story.

Great movie and great acting!!!
½ July 16, 2017
A very well-done, absorbing film. However, it could have used more dialog and plot exposition. For example, so much of the film centered on the protagonist's fixation on Home that it was unclear if he had a job. There were also inter-character conflicts whose origins were only hinted at, making it a bit dis-orienting for the viewer.

Heartfelt story that touches the soul.

Incredible true story, beautifully scripted, and achingly touching. The cinematography is so potent, it feels like place/setting could also be counted as a full character. Well cast and acted. Recommended.
