Hendo (The Movie Journey)’s review published on Letterboxd:
Heavily advertised here in Australia, and yet the only Best Picture nominated movie I knew nothing about, Lion surprised me when it turned out to be a warm, heart felt movie with an oscar winning performance from Dev Patel. Just get this guy for every half English/Indian film being made now.
The movie got me emotionally at several points with the wonderful first half, but dropped (a little) in the second half. But still, a very good film to check out on the road to the oscars.
