Synopsis


Director Garth Davis brings dramatic heft and shimmering visuals to this saga of five-year-old Saroo, who is accidentally stranded in Kolkata, 950 miles from his home in Madhya Pradesh. Afraid and disoriented, he faces overwhelming challenges, but is eventually adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) who lovingly parent him in their native Tasmania. While on a hotel management course 25 years later, the grown-up Saroo (Dev Patel) meets and falls in love with Lucy (Rooney Mara), who then helps him to search for the mother he still yearns for back in India.

Based on a true story, this is an arresting, emotionally charged and Oscar-worthy tale.
