Lion (2016)

4/10
These type of movies only get made because the story provides a bit of closure with happy ending for audiences and the main characters. What discouraged me from actually enjoying this film was how they divided up the story. It focused way too much time on a lost boy, less on his search for his origins, and even less time on the adventure home. I never felt bad for the kid, because if he only listened, there would be no story here. Poor decisions are a continuous theme in his life, so I never got invested in his story.
