Directed by Garth Davis (TV Series “Top of the Lake”), and adapted from Saroo Brierley’s engrossing memoir “A Long Way Home”. LION tells the true story of how a wrong train takes a five-year-old Indian boy hundreds of miles from home; he survives many challenges before being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, haunted by memories of his childhood, he learns of a new technology called Google Earth, and sets out to find his lost family.
The film stars Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman. It is scheduled to premiering at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and BFI London Film Festival.
