Lion is the 2nd powerful movie Libby and I have seen in about as many weeks. We don't go to movies THAT much, but this and Hidden Figures, are two crackers. Lion is the true story of a young Indian boy, based on his book A Long Way Home. Through the poverty his family lived in, he fell asleep on a train and ended up on the other side of India. Being illiterate as well as only 5 years old, he was left to fend for himself on the streets. After a series of dangerous encounters he found shelter in an orphanage. Adopted by an Australian family he never forgot his origins and in his early 20's he researched his way back to his family.
The reunion reminded me of the joy of the return of the prodigal son, though the causes for that boys separation from family were very different.
