Lion Description

In LION, five-year-old Saroo gets lost on a train travelling away from his home and family. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, escaping all sorts of terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven. Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple, and finds love and security as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parentsโ€™ feelings, he suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification, and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. With just a small store of memories, and the help of a new technology called Google Earth, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.

The Lion Guard will recount the efforts of Kion, the son and youngest child of Simba and Nala, to assemble a team of animals to protect the Pride Lands. Some characters from The Lion King, its 1998 sequel The Lion King II: Simba's Pride and 2004's The Lion King 1ยฝ, will appear such as Kiara, Timon, Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu, Simba, Nala and Mufasa. It will also feature new characters including a cheetah named Fuli, a hippopotamus named Beshte, an egret named Ono and a honey badger named Bunga, who will serve as Kion's friends.

Lion Movie Reviews

  • Captivating and Moving. My unwritten story.

    As an adopted child, now an adult, this movie hit so very close to home. Everyone's been asking if I've seen it yet, and now I know why. This story is captivating, and Dev Patel's performance was brillaint. I'm pretty sure I used up half a box of tissues. From identity crisis, to using Google earth to find your birth home, to an adoptive parent's true love, to wondering where your biological mother is now, it felt like I was watching my life on screen. This movie will leavey you catching your breath at the end.
  • Important film, great true story.

    I really liked this movie. It made me both happy and sad (mostly happy) and I'm glad I didn't miss it.
  • This movie is now on Netiflx

    One of the best movies inspirational!
  • Almost...

    Chang Shan Hydrangea
    This was a decent movie especially on the part of the actors. However, cannot meet a movie like Changeling for example, in my opinion. I just felt something in this story could've been further developed. Like something was missing.
  • Gripping & gut-wrenching, yet hopeful.

    There are some films that leave you awe-struck and wanting to change the world. This stunning narrative ranks among the best of them and will leave you drained and fulfilled at the same time. Powerful and humbling...beautiful and raw.
  • Wow!!

    Was not expecting it to be as good as it was. Such a amazing story! Must see!!
  • Incredible story and a great movie.

    One of the best real stories. Great movie.
  • I can't even describe this.

    Heather Posey
    So very powerful I've seen it twice, bought the book and am reading it and I am still completely mesmerized by Saroo's story. It would be humbling just to meet him. The film is a beautiful testament to the power of love mixed with the human spirit. It's a tale of survival and redemption.
  • Not sure why the reviews are so high...

    Slow and seems to try to hard, not worth the time investment.
  • Best movie I've seen recently.

    Very well acted, true story, supremely entertaining. Recommending it to anyone that will listen.
  • Remarkable

    It's been three days since we watched the movie but my brothers are still calling out the names "Saroo" and "Guddu". It sure left a lasting impression.
  • Great Movie!!!

    Great movie about humanity and how depraved people are and also the good in people. Great coming home story!
  • The best movie of 2016

    Neal JE
    By far the best movie of 2016.
  • One of the best movies

    That movie was one of the best in the face of the earth I would like to say it's one of my favorite movies it is such an inspiring movie I would have to give it five stars because it was so good๐Ÿ˜
  • Best Movie I've seen in a long time

    The acting in this movie is superb. Kidman and Patel might have done the movie of their lives. The character Patel plays has almost a sixth sense, sensing danger at such a young age and piecing together memories with Google Earth. The story will "haunt" you for days. Watch it. You won't be sorry.
  • Beautiful Story!

    This movie really made me appreciate the things that have become normal to us everyday. The things we forget are special. Very nice put together movie from beginning to end.
  • Worth every penny

    I wanted to see this movie while it was in theaters... but never got the chance! When they say it's a "feel good movie", believe me it is! This movie depicts love, depression, anxiety, inspiration, & hope. So glad to witness great film making. On top great film making you witness true events that helps you forget about all the bad in this world. โค๏ธ
