Hi everyone, Bryan here…


For $34.99, you’re not getting much here. If they want to charge that, they will need to up the ante on the extras or make this 4K. Wait till this drops below $20 for a purchase.

The journey begins for audiences everywhere when Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company release the critically acclaimed LION on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand March 21, 2017 and on Digital HD March 7, 2017Garth Davis’ directorial film debut garnered six Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture. The film features an astounding cast with Best Supporting Actor nominee Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), David Wenham (300), Best Supporting Actress nominee Nicole Kidman (Academy Award® winner for The Hours) and newcomers Abhishek Bharate and Sunny Pawar. Additional Academy Award® nominations include Best Music (Original Score), Best Cinematography and Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay).

LION follows five-year-old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) who gets lost on a train traveling away from his home and family. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, escaping all sorts of terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven. Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham), and finds love and security as he grows up in Hobart. As an adult, not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, Saroo (Dev Patel) suppresses his past, his emotional need for reunification and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning. Armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, Saroo sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.
