Remembering pieces of his past, an adopted man searches for his lost five-year-old self in India.

There is no question in my mind that Dev Patel is one of the greatest young talents in film right now. And he delivers with every scene. But, for me, the entire movie was stolen by the sweet voice of five-year-old Saroo, as he desperately calls for his brother from the train he found himself trapped inside on a cross-country trip through India. Jump twenty-five years and we find an adult Saroo trying to reconcile a love for his adopted family with the unanswered questions about where he came from and what happened to his family. The journey is worth the time, and will have you seriously thinking about helping a whole country full of lost children that you didn’t know existed.
