Cine-Cinema Presents Lion

In December, Cine-Cinema presents Lion, a film for the entire family
Acclaimed as inspiring, touching and luminescent, a happy movie, perfect for the holidays, by film critic, Elizabeth Lepage-Boily, the film Lion is an adaptation of an autobiographical story by Saroo Brierley (A Long Way Home) directed by Garth Davis in 2016.
Starring Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman, Lion recounts the adventure of a young five-year-old Indian boy after taking a train by mistake which takes him several thousand kilometres from his home, and his survival in a hostile city until his adoption by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, he embarks on a search for his lost family.
Lion received 17 nominations and three awards in 2016, 2017 for Best actor in a second role, Best adaptation scenario and Best director for a first film.
The film, 120 minutes in length, will be presented in its English version on Friday, December 15 at 7:30 p.m. and in French on Sunday, December 17 at 2 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for children, 16 years of age and under.
In January, Cine-Cinema will present the Quebec film, Les rois mongols, by Luc Picard, also a film for the entire family.
Cine-Cinema holds its activities at The Little Green Library, at 4 Lorne in Huntingdon.
