LION

In the heart-wrenching drama Lion, five-year-old Saroo (wonderfully played by Sunny Pawar) gets lost on a train that takes him thousands of miles away from his home and family, ending up bewildered and afraid in chaotic Kolkata (Calcutta). Somehow he survives living on the streets, before finding shelter in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven. 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, Saroo (Dev Patel, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Slumdog Millionaire) 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, his unwavering determination, 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. The true story of a life lost and found, Lion also stars Rooney Mara.

20TH CENTURY WOMEN

Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right, American Beauty) gives one of her best performances ever as Dorothea, a determined single mother raising her adolescent son Jamie (newcomer Lucas Jade Zumann, in a breakout performance) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. In the late 1970s in Santa Barbara, Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing—Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in their home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor.  Acclaimed filmmaker Mike Mills (writer/director of the Academy Award-winning Beginners) brings us a richly multi-layered, funny, heart-stirring celebration of the complexities of women, family and adulthood.  20th Century Women is a poignant love letter to the people who raise us—and the times that form us—as this makeshift family forges fragile connections that will mystify and inspire them through their lives. Also starring Billy Crudup. Academy Award nominee for Best Original Screenplay.
