A new review of “Lion” is the latest from Linda and Al Lerner on Movies and Shakers


You’re going to fall in love with little Sunny Pawar when you see him in Lion. He beat out 2000 boys to play 5-year-old Saroo, a boy in India who gets separated from his family and becomes a street urchin thousands of miles away. He was not an actor but he is now. We see this teeny figure against the huge landscape lost and we fear for his life in so many dangerous situations. But much of this story is really about Google Earth and how it helped Saroo find his way back to his village.
