Cinema – Lion (18)
Dev Patel is back in Calcutta for this affecting drama about a man returning home to find the family he lost 20 years before. It’s based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, who got lost on the streets of Calcutta as a five year-old before being adopted by an Australian family (David Wenham and the ever persuasive Nicole Kidman). Brierley then uses a combination of Google and persistence to track his real family down. Overdone at times but moved you will be.
