Movie Info

Ten year-old Mia has her life turned upside down when her family decides to leave their home in London to manage a lion farm in South Africa. When a beautiful white lion, Charlie, is born, Mia develops a close attachment to the wild cub. After three years, Mia's life is rocked once again when she uncovers an upsetting secret kept hidden by her father. Distraught by the thought that Charlie could be in harm, Mia decides to run away. The two set off on an epic adventure across the wild African savanna in search for another land where Charlie can live out his life safe and free.


Critic Reviews for Mia and the White Lion

  • Despite a heartfelt sentiment, and the filmmakers' desire to raise awareness about an abhorrent practice, packaging it in a family-friendly narrative proves to be problematic.

  • Cuddly vibes quickly give way to something more questionable here, and while many kids will find the fantasy appealing, any parent buying a ticket should be legally required to show his child Grizzly Man immediately after...

  • There are several uniquely impressive elements to the adventure drama "Mia and the White Lion," but they're undermined by a choppy, at times contrived and implausible script by Prune de Maistre and William Davies.

  • The making-of details might even be the most fascinating aspect of this film.

  • Under its appearance of an adventure film, it shows the disturbing functionality of the cinema as a bleaching instrument. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Its powerful stuff watching star Daniah De Villiers interact with the lion actors so easily over the two-year shoot. Gilles de Maistre' film also sends a powerful message about African hunting farms posing as sanctuaries.
