Starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, and David Wenham, this 2016 biographical drama tells the life story of Saroo. As a five-year-old, Saroo unwittingly winds up in Calcutta. Not understanding the local Bengali language, he begins to wander the streets of Calcutta before he is placed in an orphanage. Eventually, he is adopted by an Australian couple and 20 years later begins to trace his roots to find his biological family. During the process, Saroo finds out that his real name is ‘Sheru’, meaning ‘Lion’. The film earned six Oscar nominations at the 89th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Patel), Best Supporting Actress (Kidman), and Best Adapted Screenplay.
The film is rated PG-13.
