  • 5 stars Awesome and timely movie especially with current immigration in the US. I chose this movie because I wanted it to touch my heart deeply. It did just that. Great first hand look at what orphans, children without birth parents in their formative years, immigrants and adult children needing to find themselves and their cultural roots. This movie gave me more com(passion) for all people.

  • 5 stars Outstanding movie. Heart breaking at times but well worth your time. One of the best movies in a very long time.
  • 5 stars This was a great movie. The acting was superbly done, you could really feel for the main character. Dev Patel was excellent and Nicole Kidman shone in her role. A warm-hearted and true story!
  • 3 stars Worth seeing. True story about being lost and then found. A real tribute to family love and the good people in the world who adapt children for the right reasons. A bit slow in the middle so couldn't give it 4 stars. Otherwise great casting, photography and music.Bring Kleenex for the finale.
