The tear jerker, Lion

If you don’t cry at this film, you could possibly be inhuman. This is the breathtaking true story of Sharoo, a small Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, far away from home. He is adopted by an Australian couple but 25 years later he realises he has been lost all these years and sets out to find home. Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Sunny Pawar (the young Sharoo) depict the emotional journey so well. It also gave me a different outlook on adoption, a really inspiring view of it from the perspective of Nicole Kidman’s character, Sue Brierley.
