[7.25/10] Lion (2016)

Lion (2016)

Quick Review: Beautifully-crafted, and proving that home is where the heart is, indeed, "Lion" is a refined film, tonally divided into two halves, both equally as emotional, gripping, and moving, with the first one really capturing the true essence of India. The fact that this deep, yet uplifting story actually happened in real life is amazing enough in itself, but what makes it even more plausible is the grounded, natural acting, especially the one from Patel, who plays a role that was meant for him.

Alex, it is good, but it's far from perfect.
