Reviews


90
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
A sober and yet profoundly stirring contemplation of family, roots, identity and home, which engrosses throughout the course of its two-hour running time.
80
Screen International - Fionnuala Halligan
If Saroo’s story seems out-of-this world, the team behind this film have risen to meet the challenge it sets. There may be a sense of inevitability about Saroo’s ultimate destination, but what counts here is the journey.
80
The Telegraph - Tim Robey
The script never lunges for cheap drama by forcing Saroo into a binary choice between mothers, and the most complex beats are about tip-toeing around, often counter-productively, to avoid hurt or betrayal.
75
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Lion, the first feature directed by Garth Davis, sufficiently realizes the emotional arc built into Brieley’s experience.
75
Entertainment Weekly - Darren Franich
Where Saroo goes and what he finds there left me in tears, but you feel that a complicated true story has been airbrushed into a postmodern legend.
