Lion  ( Australia 2017, Cert PG  114 mins)

This month’s Corrie Film Club’s August offering is a heart-warming and uplifting film which won two BAFTA awards and International film of the year. Directed by Garth Davis and starring Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, Lion is the true story of an Indian child lost and found.

Five year old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India away from home and family into the middle of chaotic Kolkata. After surviving living on the streets, Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple and finds love and security in Hobart.

As an adult Saroo, not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents, suppresses his past and his need for re–unification with his own family but a chance encounter with some fellow Indians re-awakens his buried yearning and he sets out to find his mother, father and brother.

See this beautiful film in Corrie and Sannox Hall tomorrow (Sunday) at 8pm. All welcome, admission free but a small donation to the village hall is always appreciated.
