'Lion' - film

I went to Palace Cinema in Balwyn this afternoon. 
This is a powerful film based on a true story. Stellar performance by, well, everyone in the cast. 
I particularly liked the first half, depicting harsh reality of life in a slum. I'm not in a position of knowing how much it actually reflects the reality, but, it was really tough to watch. That child actor was really superb. 
It's very clever the way the film intertwined the present and the past seamlessly. 

A film that makes us think, and lingers in our minds for a long time. 
A definition of a great film. 

I wasn't a big fan of the use of soundtrack by Sia at the end of the film, when film credits started to roll. 
As much as I like her as a musician, I felt the song changed the tone and texture of the film so abruptly that it lost its integrity. Well, at least for me.
