Lion Movie Shares True Story Of Adoption

Dev Patel stars in the movie, Lion, which is based on the true story of 5-year-old Saroo. Lost in India, Saroo survives against all odds and is adopted to a loving couple in Australia. Nicole Kidman stars as Saroo’s adoptive mother who supports him, as an adult, as he searches for his birth family. This compelling true story is well represented by Hollywood as they dramatize Saroo’s experience from his memory, notes kept in the orphanage, and records kept by his adoptive family.
