Viewer reviewsCaptivating and Moving. My unwritten story.
As an adopted child, now an adult, this movie hit so very close to home. Everyone's been asking if I've seen it yet, and now I know why. This story is captivating, and Dev Patel's performance was brillaint. I'm pretty sure I used up half a box of tissues. From identity crisis, to using Google earth to find your birth home, to an adoptive parent's true love, to wondering where your biological mother is now, it felt like I was watching my life on screen. This movie will leavey you catching your breath at the end. — PSJsk95
Important film, great true story.
I really liked this movie. It made me both happy and sad (mostly happy) and I'm glad I didn't miss it. — ZenMeister7
This movie is now on Netiflx
If you don't have a Netflix then if you like to see the then just rent it to save the money and haveing not seen this movie most likely I will see it on Netflix ! — Ryan amazing
One of the best movies ever...so inspirational! — OMGoodness!
This was a decent movie especially on the part of the actors. However, cannot meet a movie like Changeling for example, in my opinion. I just felt something in this story could've been further developed. Like something was missing. — Chang Shan Hydrangea
Gripping & gut-wrenching, yet hopeful.
There are some films that leave you awe-struck and wanting to change the world. This stunning narrative ranks among the best of them and will leave you drained and fulfilled at the same time. Powerful and humbling...beautiful and raw. — Snagtooth
Was not expecting it to be as good as it was. Such a amazing story! Must see!! — coldblooded1997
Incredible story and a great movie.
One of the best real stories. Great movie. — Rinasandler
I can't even describe this.
So very powerful I've seen it twice, bought the book and am reading it and I am still completely mesmerized by Saroo's story. It would be humbling just to meet him. The film is a beautiful testament to the power of love mixed with the human spirit. It's a tale of survival and redemption. — Heather Posey
Not sure why the reviews are so high...
Slow and seems to try to hard, not worth the time investment. — DexNTheFatMan
Very good movie. Great scenario based on a real story. At the end I was in tears. Refreshing to enjoy a movie with a good ending. — Greek Woman
So amazing — B.abbazadeh
Definitely one to watch. — PhillipAT
So slow and boring, no depth to the movie. Bounces around too much doesn't give you any time to get invested in the characters. No clue how Nicole Kidman is nominated for an award on this she barely did anything. The best part is the last 5 minutes. — DlangG
Best movie I’ve seen in 2017
and maybe the last several years: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Brisan
The plot is based on a amazing man who pieces togther his past and finds his roots. The subplot of the girlfriend could have been cut and it still would have been a great film. Well played out with great cinematoghpy. — Frank C 66554321.
An absolutely wonderful movie
This movie grabbed my heart in so many different places. Do not miss this amazing journey. Take that train ride with Saroo and make sure you have some tissues. — Sharon1120
I had only heard of this film in passing, but it was so great. It was a great story, well translated into film. It was emotional, and takes you through highs and lows. Definitely a film I would recommend. — Bcbunni
Amazing. A must-watch!
I'm usually not a fan of this type of genre. My go-to's are romcoms and comedies. However, I saw this was for rental for 99cents so I decided to give it a go. Oh my goodness..I am SO glad I did. AMAZING AMAZING movie! THIS WAS JUST TOO GOOD. — JULIEEEEEEEeeEeEdfkajdfkl

A Special Film
I loved this movie. Young and old Saroo (Sheru) were remarkable. The story so heartwarming. — Emkoss
This is a movie that does not fail to leave a strong impact on those who watch it. You'll be thinking about it long after it's over. It is filled with emotion, and while it is both sad and happy, the latter feeling tended to dominate and produce the most tears -- happy tears of course. This movie is, in one word, powerful. — noodlestrudel
A must see!
A great based on a true story movie. The acting was awesome! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time...no this isn't s thriller but I loved seeing how this story unfolded and what Saroo had to go through. I'm happy this was made into a film because it was a story worth telling. — maryawhitey
This masterpiece is one of the most stylish and beautifully crafted films I have ever seen. However, even the cinematic poshness pales in comparison to the magnificence of the story itself. Saroo's tale is sure to touch all hearts as well as shine a light on a situation that is a reality for so many. (Plus, the little actor Sunny Pawar is just adorable!) — A.Goel
This movie has so much hope and determination in it its such a beautiful movie and it's very emotional. Love it. The graphics are amazing. — RhyanTheQueen2
This movie should have won Best Picture
From the opening sequence until the very last frame of this movie...we were enthralled. BEAUTIFUL from beginning to end, and personally. I cried until I couldn't see. Every scene mattered, every actor was sublime. You will not be disappointed. — TheMitchells808
Excellent and heart wrenching

AMAZINNGNG — I.LOVE.ANIMALS
