Off the beaten track
Based on the book ‘Long Journey Home’, Garth Davis’ Lion has taken audiences on a journey of their own (and is tipped to become an Oscar favourite). The film depicts the life-changing events experienced by Saroo Brierley. He boarded a train as a poverty-stricken five year old and was subsequently taken clear across India; separated from his family and all he recognised as home. These tragic scenes are played by Sunny Pashwar. His moving portrayal of a child, displaced and distraught in bustling Calcutta, is sure to tug at your heartstrings.
