It’s a bit refreshing for a film that finds itself as a power player in the Oscar race. I doubt Lion will win much, but it’s quietness, it’s emotionally naked and honest performances are most welcome breathers between the louder entrie... read more

To be honest, I had no clue what this movie was about so I wasn’t really sure what to expect but since it had been well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be such a powerful and heartbreaking tale. Of course, you might argue that the whole thing was rather predictable but it was so well done, I thought it was just quite spellbinding and, to be ho... read more

A very good movie

“To be honest, I had no clue what this movie was about so I wasn’t really sure what to expect but since it had been well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be such a powerful and heartbreaking tale. Of course, you might argue that the whole thing was rather predictable but it was so well done, I thought it was just quite spellbinding and, to be honest, I was actually really emotional towards the end. First of all, I really appreciate the fact that they went for a linear structure instead of the usual flashback which has been so overused in this genre. Basically, the movie was split into 2 parts.
