Will keep it in mind. Small Great Things
7646 Nina wrote: "Lion is based on a true story and that usually helps make the movie good."

"Saroo Brierley (born 1981) is an Indian-born Australian businessman who, at age 5, was separated from his biological mother. He was adopted by an Australian couple, and 25 years later reunited with his biological mother. His story generated significant international media attention, especially in Australia and India."
FROM: Saroo Brierley who wrote Lion.

It was Linda who suggested "Lion" on July 28.
(adapted from the book "A Long Way Home")
"A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family. "

I felt the same about "My Life in Ruins" (2009). I gave it one Netflix star.
7646 RE: "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" (2009)
PS - I rated it 3 stars on 9/23/2010.
