Bunwell Village Screen: Spring 2017
Our next screening at Bunwell Village Hall is:
on Friday, June 9 at 7.30pm
in Bunwell Village Hall
(Doors open at 7pm)
The true story of five-year-old Saroo (Dev Patel) who gets lost on a train travelling away from his home and family. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. He survives living on the streets, escaping terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage. Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman & David Wenham), and finds love and security as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, he suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification, and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. With just a small store of memories, and the help of a new technology called Google Earth, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.
