This is a great story, but poor filmmaking in my opinion. He talks with an Australian accent. Nicole Kidman played her part well apart from the most annoying monologue which was delivered in barely a whisper but hardly 15-20 minutes on screen must surely disqualify her from any Oscar consideration. You have done an exceptional job and gave me something which will be inmy mind and heart for a very long time. You might be cynical and view the subject matter as being comfortable Oscar-bait. It seems unlikely it was all of it since he was so young, so these scenes are really for the benefit of the audience so we spend too much of the film waiting for him to find home because we aren't actively connecting with his past like he is.

One night, Saroo insists on going with Guddu to his work and does not resist and sleeps. Torrent of Lion 2016 Movie is also available for download. Also Oscar nominated and contributing strongly to the look and feel of the film is a well-judged and effectively used piano score by Volker Bertelmann and Dustin O'Halloran. Her presence did almost zilch for plot development and it makes you wonder why the producers went to such expense in casting her in the first place. I stated above that he's torn between two cultures, but I'm only conjecturing about that, since that's not shown in the movie.

He delivers terrific emotion at all the right times. I'll start by saying that I'm an incredibly emotional person myself, which means I'm capable of feeling great empathy for most of the characters on screen, but this time I could clearly hear the whole crowd in the projection room crying their hearts out, or at least feeling sad for that little, genuine and brilliant kid played by Sunny Pawar, whose first performance on screen was pure gold. . Nicole Kidman plays the adoptive mother. Grade: B- Whenever I wander in the streets of the Moroccan Medina, I feel at home. I found her, but that doesn't change who you are. The same cannot be said of Rooney Mara's performance.
However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. He was just outstanding for such a young actor.

Along the credits, the footage of the real characters in India will make many eyes brimming with tears. In GarthDavis' Lion, we see the effects of such a case on the child rather thanthe family left behind. Her performance in Lion is heartfelt. With some luck and Google maps, the story comes fullcircle.
The colour palette is exotic,sound track emotionally intense, and the directing finds a rhythm thatis almost orchestral. I know you will be sound asleep. The script is fantastic,the cinematography is lush, the soundtrack complements the film reallynicely, and the pacing is on point where it rarely feels like it'sdragging, despite the story taking place over the course of 25 years. Things are not nearly as interesting in the movie's second half. From here, Patel could really go places, starting withawards recognition in the early new year.

Lost Saroo looks around for Guddu at the dark train station and thenlooks for Guddu everywhere, in his thoughts for the rest of his life. Every actor in here is also terrific in their roles. I grew up in streets like the streets ofthe movie 'Lion'. Nicole Kidman is of course outstanding as his adoptive mother.
