Babes in Arms Screening
Tuesday 11 April 2017 at 11:00 am - 1:10 pm
Our Monthly 11.00am Babes in Arms screening
Bringing a baby is not compulsory but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium during this screening!
Intending patrons should note that the lights will not be fully dimmed during the screening and that people may need to move around.
This Month we present:
Lion (2016, Australia/USA) Cert. PG (partially subtitled)
Director: Garth Davis
Stars: Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara
Saroo and his family live a hand-to-mouth existence in a small Indian village. One night while out scavenging, he gets separated from his brother Guddu and after climbing aboard a parked train, falls asleep and wakes up utterly lost and alone in Calcutta.
Fast forward a couple of decades….
Having been adopted by an Australian couple, a chance encounter with a taste (literally) of his earlier life triggers long lost (or buried) memories and sends the adult Saroo off on a search for his original family, but the clues he has to their whereabouts are sketchy.
Ravishing photography of India and Australia, together with standout performances by the star actors, Patel as the adult Saroo and Kidman (hot tip for best supporting actress) as his adoptive mother, make this a truly heartrending true-life story.
“As enthralling as it is emotional” (Hollywood Reporter).
