Movie recommendations are fickle. Not only do interests vary, but so do consciences. So if you do not want to have your emotions pulled in painful directions, and if you harbor concerns about the content, which isn’t disqualifying in my mind, then save yourself a few dollars and do not stream this movie.
But if you do want to feel the heart-breaking pain of a child lost in Calcutta, as well as the emotional struggles that typically attend adoption, then the powerful film, Lion, is a perfect fit.
It is a story rooted in truth. It is a story that will make you cry. And it is a story that will make you want to help. Thankfully, there are ways to help. But I leave that for you to consider after watching it.
I do not want to say much more, as it is best to go into movies knowing as little as possible.
So again, the movie is Lion. It has an 8.1 on IMDB and an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.
