Another rainy day in the city, and it was feeling like mid winter as I put on my boots and rain jacket. Still it was nice to get out and meet a friend for some food and a movie.
I had seen the shorts for Lion a few times. Sarno is a small 5 year old boy from a small Indian village, living with his mum, younger sister and big brother. When they become separated how will he find his way back?
Dev Patel does a great job as the grown up Sarno, but it is the young Sunny Pawar who for me is amazing in this movie who steals the show. I didn't need tissues but there were a couple of tears building up. Be sure to stay till the end too, as the last few minutes are important. 5/5
