Lion (2016 Aust/USA, 118 Mins, PG) - Partially Subtitled- Babes in Arms Screening.

Director: Garth Davis ● Starring: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman.

Saroo and his family live a hand-to-mouth existence in a small Indian village. One night while out scavenging, he gets separated from his brother Guddu and after climbing aboard a parked train, falls asleep and wakes up utterly lost and alone in Calcutta.

Fast forward a couple of decades…. 

Having been adopted by an Australian couple, a chance encounter with a taste (literally) of his earlier life triggers long lost (or buried) memories and sends the adult Saroo off on a search for his original family, but the clues he has to their whereabouts are sketchy. 

Ravishing photography of India and Australia, together with standout performances by the star actors, Patel as the adult Saroo and Kidman (hot tip for best supporting actress) as his adoptive mother, make this a truly heartrending true-life story. 

“As enthralling as it is emotional” (Hollywood Reporter).

With one showing at 11am ONLY.- Please note that this is a babes in arms screening. Bringing a baby is not essential but we cannot ensure complete silence in the auditorium.
