Dev Patel takes an amazing star turn as a young Indian man adopted by an Australian couple who begins to remember the family he lost as a child–and decides to seek them out. The movie could have descended into a mundane tear-jerker, but stand-out performances by Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, and David Wenham along with a deft touch at the script, cinematography, and directing raise Lion up to something altogether better. With Oscar Noms for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Original Score.
Lion opens at our last 2:00 Friday Matinee for the season, and plays at 2:00 & 7:30 Friday, 5:00 & 7:30 Saturday & Sunday, and 7:30 Monday.
