The movie “Lion” was released in 2016, and the director of the film is Garth Davis. It is about a five-year-old Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, which is thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family. We saw the movie on Wednesday, and I loved the message of the movie.
I loved the storyline of the movie, and it had a lot of different touchy and beautiful scenes. One that I found very sad was when Saroo´s adoptive mother told him the reason why she chose to adopt him and his brother. She told him that she wanted them because they would rather help out two boys in need, and save them from the conditions they were in. Since the movie has such drastic and sad moments, they make you think about how lucky you are that you live in a country that doesn´t experience these things. You also start to realize even more that people go through things that your mind cant even imagine happening. I never realized why they called the movie Lion since it didn´t have anything to do with the movie. But at the end of the movie, you find out that Saroo was mispronouncing his own name wrong, which was actually Sheru, which means Lion.
When movies do these types of things, makes them way more interesting than they really are. When you think that you know everything about the movie, and then these huge plot twists come around, and everything that you thought you knew, were wrong. These plot twists make me love the movies even more and especially in this movie. Overall I liked the movie, but that was only because of the message and the story. It isn´t my normal type of movie to watch, but I liked the plot so much, that it became good.
