A Lion Runs The Fastest When He Is Hungry

--- Salman Khan

 

Lion - Golden Globe Nominee Best Motion Picture Drama

"Raising Awareness for homeless children in India"

 

The movie "Lion features a Golden Globe-nominated performance by Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman." From the very moment this story began on the big screen I was riveted and transported into another world. Based on a true story this film has all the ingredients of what makes a movie great:

  • Truth
  • Adventure
  • Love
  • Confusion
  • Hope
  • Struggles
  • Isolation
  • Family
  • Basic Instincts
  • Panic
  • Determination
  • Emotional Conflict
  • Perseverance
  • Decision-Making
  • Achievement
  • True Happiness

 

Children don't get to pick their parents or decide how, when, or where they are born. They come into this world without any expectations. Childhood is like a fast-playing movie which plants thoughts, ideas, and memories into our heads. Millions of children are homeless in India.

 

Some parents choose not to have children and some make a conscious decision to adopt. The importance of strong family ties is the seed that is planted in children around the world. First impressions matter to a child. If they have nothing to compare it with how do they formulate ideas about what is right and what is wrong? Does a child even have a sense of direction or are they dependent on a parental figure or sibling for guidance? Can a child survive on their own? In the absence of both, a lion emerges in the main character for this story.

 

I won't kid you, this is a heart-wrenching true story; therefore, be prepared to bring a box of Kleenex. For me, this is one of the best movies I've ever seen because of the story, photography, human relationships between children and their siblings and adults. In the end, I questioned whether or not anyone was created to have true happiness. I believe you can have happiness, but it isn't always "true." Go see the movie and you be the judge.

I would likely cry, it tugs on my heart deeply to know that someone is homeless, especially a child.

The trailer is very moving, I can see that it is a movie Trudy would like, she likes a story and it has some very good actors in it as well.Thanks for sharing, I have not seen this advertised locally here, so will have to hunt it down.

It was a wonderful film Patricia and I love that it is also a true story-the poverty in India and the number of homeless orphaned children is astounding.

Hi Patricia - I'm definitely going to see this movie. When I backpacked India several years ago, I couldn't help but worry about the children I met there.

Patricia the tear jerking movies are my wife's thing so she would probably love this moving.  I am more into the Blood & Guts and Comedies.

Hi Patricia  first I have to say if the parents choose not to have children I don't think you can call them parents. Lol. Michael in Pasadena suggested this movie too he said wewould probably enjoy it more knowing less about it and I'm really looking forward to seeing it when I get back to Sacramento.

Hi Patricia --- As Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents noted in her comment, I do believe the experience is likely more entertaining if you know less about it prior to seeing it.  Having said that, I really liked "Lion" a lot even though I knew some of the story.  

Tonight is the Golden Globes Awards and for those who watch these types of shows maybe that visibility will increase awareness of this very deserving film.

Michael Jacobs - WHEW! Thank you for clearing that up! I worry too much - can you tell by the color of my hair? 

I didn't read the book. Typically, if I like the movie well enough and want to know more, I'll read the book afterward. That works for me! Your comment makes more sense to me now. 

P.S. I don't usually talk to anyone in the Ladies Rest Room but on this day, two ladies came out of the stall, one looked at the other and said, "Did you see Lion?" I answered yes. We were both standing in front of the mirror with tear stained faces. The only difference was, she knew what to expect - I was clueless.
