"Five year old Saroo gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from home and family. Saroo must learn to survive alone in Kolkata, before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home."
We found it to be absolutely moving and it definitely brought a tear to the eye (even TraderVic - shhh!)
"A searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband's legacy and the world of "Camelot" that they created and loved so well."
Another stunning performance (Natalie Portman was so very definitely Jackie Kennedy) and the filmography and soundtrack were amazing! TraderVic and I have been watching this seemingly endless series about The Kennedys on the History channel - so this film played straight into our wheelhouse.
Critics agree that this is one of Portman's best films and they agree with me re the soundtrack.
I can highly recommend both films and if you could have a tie for Best Film, I would give it to these two.
