The movie is absolutely thought provoking and inspiring. This little boy who was so brave, and could run like the wind away from danger. The contrasting shots of Tasmania to India were breathtaking, I could easily see it again. There was not a dry eye in the theatre myself included.

Guess what I saw the movie again!

Highly recommended 

Synopsis

Can you imagine being lost and not finding your way home again? Saroo Brierley became lost on a train in India at the age of five. Not knowing the name of his family or where he was from, he survived for weeks on the streets of Kolkata, before being taken into an orphanage and adopted by a family in Australia. Despite being happy in his new home, Saroo always wondered about his origins. He spent hours staring at the map of India on his bedroom wall. He pored over satellite images on Google Earth seeking out landmarks he recognised. And one day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for. Then he set off on a journey back to India to see if he could find his mother. This inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds is now a major motion picture starring Dev Patel, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman.
