Lion (2016) Review | CineMuseFilms

Summary:

I’m eager to see “Lion,” starring Dev Patel. CineMuse awards the film a top rating (4.5 stars). And given the refugee/immigrant uproar we have on our hands, it’s an opportune time to affirm interest in people from other lands.

UPDATE, February 8, 2017 – I saw Lion yesterday. It is a beautiful, moving, and important film — particularly impressive in the way it covers the psychological trauma of lost children.

Lion (2016) Review | CineMuseFilms

“If film-art is the pursuit of visual pleasure, powerful storytelling and high emotional impact, then Lion (2016) is the year’s high-water mark for Australian productions. Based on the book A Long Way Home (2014), this adaptation is a richly textured essay on the primal human need for belonging that will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered who they are… An immensely satisfying cinematic experience: visually stunning, narratively powerful, and an emotional whirlwind.” ~ Richard Alaba, CineMuseFilms

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
