"As enthralling as it is emotional."
- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"Lion is blessed with a Ripley's Believe It or Not story line that would warm the heart of a stone."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Let’s just say if you are human, there is no way that Lion won’t move you. "
- Susan Wloszczyna,
"Saroo is played dazzlingly by Dev Patel, who gives his richest performance since Mira Nair’s The Namesake."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Lion is a beautifully told, uplifting story of courage and determination."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"Its themes are universal. Everyone has a home, and everyone feels connected to it, no matter how far they travel."
- Adam Graham, Detroit News
"Lion has one of those plot lines that feels like a Hollywood screenplay - except it actually happened."
- Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A heart-wrenching true story, with what could be one of the great child-actor performances of all time."
- Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Lion celebrates the human will and the human need to find meaning and connection in life. If the final scenes don't have you blubbering, your humanity may need some fine-tuning."
- Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Once in awhile, a movie comes along that is so touching and sincere, without a moment of false emotion or manipulative self-indulgence, that it establishes squatters’ rights and moves into your heart to stay."
- Rex Reed, New York Observer
"The young star, maturing nicely past the boyish enthusiasm he showed in "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Marigold Hotel" films, enters a new phase of his career with fierce commitment. Lion is one from the heart."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This amazing true story with remarkable performances by Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman and newcomer Sunny Pawar has, like the title would suggest, a blend of brute force and elegance. "
- Jordon Hoffman, New York Daily News
