Excellent movie for the family!

Amazing. One of the best movies I have ever seen. Heart wrenching. The young version in the story did an phenomenal job. Great acting. Being an immigrant it really struck a chord of the meaning of home and the search for belonging. A true masterpiece.

The feels. And the fact it's based on real life is all the more spectacular!

Gah, considering there's really not much of a plot, it made me cry twice. The acting is superb, even from the young actors, and they use flashbacks to build an incredible emotional journey, that really gets me with its family values, and how modern or unconventional families can still have so much love.
Not something I thought I would enjoy, and not something I would watch again, but a truly memorable based-on-a-true-story tale that you won't forget.
Watched on the plane flying back from Moncton after my cousin Beth's wedding (on the flight from Montreal to Calgary) with Sam, September 13, 2017.

An encouraging look at adoption, as a man successfully reunites with his birth mother. It touches on the hard parts of orphanage life, without overwhelming the viewer. All this is set against the beautiful backdrop of India.

3.5/5. The first act of Lion is riveting, with a surprisingly great performance from Sunny Pawar, and a terrifying atmosphere. The 3rd act has an extremely emotion conclusion. Unfortunately, the second act drags quite a bit and the story stagnates for too long. That said Lion is a good film and worth the watch.

Despite being overly sentimental at times, Lion is absorbing and moving to the core. Follow him home.

This is a beautifully told true story about family, identity, home and searching for a lost past. Some beautiful cinematography and gritty representation of poor India and growing up and surviving in the streets in contrast to the seemingly luxurious life of modern Australia.

Heartwarming stuff. This movie succeeds well beyond initial expectations at making you take another look at family and its significance to the individual.
