Sia’s “Never Give Up” is the perfect song to soundtrack the latest trailer for Lion, a film based on the real-life story of Saroo Brierly, who got separated from his family as a young boy in India and later found his way home over two decades later with the help of Google Earth.
Dev Patel stars as the adult Saroo, while Nicole Kidman and David Wenham play his adoptive parents. The emotional trailer sees Saroo beginning to remember flashbacks of his childhood, including the day he was separated from his older brother, Guddu, at a train station. Sunny Pawar plays the young Saroo, the focus of the film’s first half.
Lion first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September, and had its New York premiere — attended by Bill Clinton in his first public appearance since the recent presidential election — earlier this month. It’s now playing in select theaters.
