Lion at the Rose Theatre Starlight Room

The film Lion is very intense. I cried several times.

Great cast: Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, …

Five year old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple.

Twenty five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.

The Starlight Room is a collection of comfy chairs, couches and loveseats where you lounge to enjoy a fine film. We ordered a bottle of red along with meals served just at the start of the film.

The night we were there guest speakers discussed the film both before and after the showing. Very interesting.
