lion_2016Lion is a gripping drama based on “Saroo” Brierley’s autobiographical novel “A Long Way Home” which recounts his personal struggle, when at five years of age, he is accidentally locked aboard a train that travels over a thousand miles from his home. A deeply moving and beautiful film, Lion’s strength rests with Sunny Pawar’s incredibly convincing performance as the young Saroo, which establishes the powerful emotional link between his character and the audience (Klaus Ming February 2017).
