On TV Wednesday May 4: you will cry in front of this little-known true story - Actus Ciné

Mark Rogers


Adapted from the autobiographical novel by Saroo Brierley (I wanted to find my mother in VF), Lion is Garth Davis’ feature debut. He adopts his point of view as a 5-year-old child, interpreted by the moving Sunny Pawar, then as an adult, in the guise of Dev Patel, through an initiatory road-trip in India, where the film was shot, in despite the vagaries of the weather, pollution and high population density.

Very moved by this incredible true story, Rooney Mara has also agreed to participate when she had planned to take a break in her career. Indeed, like the multi-award winning Slumdog Millionaire, Lion is an immersion in Indian culture that raises awareness of the issue of missing children.

The Academy of the Oscars was not indifferent either since the biopic received 6 nominations, among others in the categories Best film and Best adapted screenplay. On the spectator side, Lion has an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 on AlloCiné.
