I worked hard, as usually, there is no time to catch breath while at this mad bootcamp, but this weekend involved some activities worth mentioning, simply because I want you to go and see this movie!
It is about a Lion:
A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, 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.
I do not recall having been touched so deep before in my life by just a movie. Truth told it is not just any movie, it tells a real story and stars Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, a chap from Harrow, so close to home. And the boy, the tiny Sunny Pawar has just blown my mind by his acting!
The story touches on so many social issues that I could go and talk about for hours on end, if you know me, you know that’s true. If you don’t know me, try and email me or leave a comment, and you will find out.
I will go to sleep now, but let me repeat – Lion is the movie!
