Lion. A film like our beer. Australian made.
Nothing makes us happier than seeing one of our mates succeed.
We already knew that Andrew Fraser, Manly Cricket Club President, friend of 4 Pines and all round legend was a talented guy. As a lifetime cricketer, we also knew that he was capable of spinning a yarn.
We did not know, that he was capable of producing a truly world class movie, detailing a story that is incredible, heart-breaking, breathtaking and also able to fill you with hope. The story is also Australian, which is something that brings a smile when we see it portrayed on the big screen.
At an advanced screening, we witnessed an entire movie theatre go through the emotional rollercoaster this film takes you through, only to come out the other side to a very humble thank you from the producers who we are proud to call locals.
You might know the story of a young boy, adopted from abject poverty in India, raised in Australia, who embarks on a journey to reunited with his family from televised specials, but this film brings it to life it a truly unique and unforgettable way.
This is not to be missed and a rare opportunity to witness that capability of Australian film makers and producers.
