Wow. I don't know why I kept hearing buzz that this wasn't a very good movie because I thought it was excellent. However, I also have a deep love for reunion stories and improbably true stories so I was clearly the intended audience.

If anyone had told me what the movie was actually about I would have watched it ages ago.

When Saroo is 5 years old, he gets lost and ends up on a train that takes him 1000 miles from home. He family lived in poverty, he doesn't know his own surname, no one can recognize the name of the town he says he's from, and he ends up in an orphanage in Calcutta. He's adopted by an Australian couple and grows up in Tasmania. 20 years later he starts to remember bits of his early life and family and becomes haunted by a quest to figure out where he's from. And then spoilers )

Holy shit, what a story. I'm wondering if the book is worth reading.

Also, you spend the entire movie trying to figure out what the title means and when they reveal it at the end, damn. I was bawling through the entire last 20 minutes but in a good way.

Dev Patel is amazing (and whoa suddenly really hot), Nicole Kidman is subtle and complex, and the kid who plays young Saroo is brilliant.

It's on Netflix in the US.

WELCOME TO PODFIC BROKEN TELEPHONE

What’s that, you ask?

Here’s how it works: Person A (your friendly neighbourhood mod) makes a podfic. It becomes the prompt for Person B. Person B’s podfic becomes a prompt for Person C’s podfic. And down the line we go until everyone’s had a turn.

Using a podfic as a prompt means that each podiccer will pick at least one key element from their prompt podfic and use it in their work. A key element could be, but isn’t limited to: fandom, character, ship, trope, format (dialogue-only, epistolary, etc) or podficcing style (SFX, music, accents, etc). Think of “key element” as something about the podfic that you’d talk about in a rec.

Want to know more? Yeah you do.

Everything about this show is delightfully surreal. Like way to take your balls-out weird premise and just run the fuck off a cliff with it while giggling maniacally. It's kind of awesome. I love everything about the look of the show, in all its out-of-time, trippy lighting, insane clothing, 70's colors, mindfuck glory. The music is pretty amazing too. The whole thing is just really well done.
