Lion Tells True Life Tale Of A Man Returning To His Roots To Search For His Family

The upcoming Hollywood film Lion tells the real-life story of Saroo Brierley, an Indian man who was separated from his family as a child and adopted by an Australian couple, and who turned to Google Earth decades later in the hope of finding his birth family. The film, which is receiving a major Oscar push from the Weinstein Company, stars Dev Patel as the adult Brierley and Nicole Kidman as his adoptive mother, with a key supporting role for Dev Patel’s hair. An exclusive one-sheet poster for the film was released Friday, which puts Patel’s glorious mane front and center, alongside co-star Rooney Mara.
