Lion, Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman. Based on the true story of an Indian boy who was separated from his family at aged 5, adopted by an Australian couple and, as a young man, desperately tries to find his home town, eventually finding and being reunited with his birth mum. It's a lovely film actually. Very emotional near the end.

No. The Lion aspect is that

throughout the film we think the boy's name is Saroo, but as a 5 year old he had been mispronouncing it. His actual name was Sheru, which translates to Lion.

OMG. What is with Hollywood and the over long movies?

It's not the 3 hrs that kills me, it's that I can't get a soda and not have to miss the movie at some point.

Why don't they consider bringing back intermissions? They make their money on concessions anyway.
