Film Review: Lion

Powerfully told, true-life epic of a five-year-old boy from rural India who gets lost and then found in the mean streets of Calcutta, and who, 25 years later, becomes a privileged young man from Australia who cannot find peace—or love—until he reconnects with the family he lost as a child. Could be a strong award-season contender.
