US/Australia – Drama – 120 mins – PG

Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman star in this real-life story of an Indian boy who became lost after a long train journey at age 5, struggled to survive on the streets, and  ended up in an orphanage where  he was adopted by a Tasmanian couple. His attempts to find his parents lead nowhere,  as his pronunciation of his name (and the name of his village) are slightly wrong. As an adult, with the advent of satellite imagery on Google Earth, and painstaking research, he begins to track down his mother and siblings. The film raises issues of cross-cultural adoptions, as he struggles with his identity and the privilege he now has, compared with his family’s poverty. The film is visually arresting throughout, with fine performances from its stars.
