  • 5 stars This is a story of tragedy, injustice, survival and hope. Take a box of kleenex and prepare to be enlightened, enchanted and changed. It's a great story and great movie.
  • 5 stars Nice to see a movie that has no filthy language. Really worth seeing! Loved it !
  • 1 stars Good story but slow and tedious. Avoid at all cost
  • 5 stars Wonderful movie - deserves an award.
  • 5 stars What a beautiful moving movie. The story, acting, plot, and editing were all superior. I highly recommend you go and see it.
  • 5 stars For all those you have ever been lost. Great true story. Dev Patel and his younger self actor do an excellent job. Surely worthy of a Academy nod.
  • 5 stars a wonderful movie
  • 4 stars Good movie...little slow moving but good over-all. Sad to see how this adorable little boy goes through his struggles from child to adult..
  • 5 stars Must watch movie! Great story, wonderful scenes in the movie. Great acting by Dev Patel! Hope it gets an award.
  • 5 stars Best movie I have seen in a very long time, very emotional and heart breaking to see how kids go missing in India in a heart beat. Sunny Pawar was amazing and he is not an actor, he should have been nominated for an award for his portrayal of young Saroo which he nailed. Dev Patel was just amazing and so was Nicole Kidman, a must see movie, it deserves to win best picture and Dev and Nicole deserves to win as well. You need Kleenex for this movie, a great family movie, so happy there were no swearing, violence and sexual content, overall an excellent and must see movie!!!
