“The true story of a foundling Indian boy who locates his mother years later via Google Maps is given the treatment it deserves in this intelligent, heartfelt film" ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


Nominated for 6 Oscars

Based on a true story, this 6 time Oscar nominated film tells the story of Saroo (Dev Patel) who, after being lost as a five year old on the streets of Kolkata is adopted by an Australian couple, and attempts to find his birth family 25 years later. 

Patel is a charismatic presence at the centre of the film while Nicole Kidman shines in the supporting role of his adoptive mother Sue Brierley. Both performances have been recognised with Oscar nominations alongside Best Film, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Score. 

Also screening for Midweek Treat.
