The first hour of this movie takes place in India, where a 5-year-old boy gets lost, thousands of miles from home. The 2nd hour casts Dav Patel in the role as the grownup version, who’s adopted by an Australian couple and ultimately decides to seek his missing family. Both segments have moments of compelling drama and beautiful cinematography. They also both go on too long: the hopeless despair in India and the mental torment in Australia. Despite engrossing performances and a remarkable story (yes, it’s true), this film is in desperate need of major trimming to minimize the anguish and maximize the emotional impact.
