Wow. I don't know why I kept hearing buzz that this wasn't a very good movie because I thought it was excellent. However, I also have a deep love for reunion stories and improbably true stories so I was clearly the intended audience.

If anyone had told me what the movie was actually about I would have watched it ages ago.

When Saroo is 5 years old, he gets lost and ends up on a train that takes him 1000 miles from home. He family lived in poverty, he doesn't know his own surname, no one can recognize the name of the town he says he's from, and he ends up in an orphanage in Calcutta. He's adopted by an Australian couple and grows up in Tasmania. 20 years later he starts to remember bits of his early life and family and becomes haunted by a quest to figure out where he's from. And then spoilers )

Holy shit, what a story. I'm wondering if the book is worth reading.

Also, you spend the entire movie trying to figure out what the title means and when they reveal it at the end, damn. I was bawling through the entire last 20 minutes but in a good way.

Dev Patel is amazing (and whoa suddenly really hot), Nicole Kidman is subtle and complex, and the kid who plays young Saroo is brilliant.

It's on Netflix in the US.

This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

Everything about this show is delightfully surreal. Like way to take your balls-out weird premise and just run the fuck off a cliff with it while giggling maniacally. It's kind of awesome. I love everything about the look of the show, in all its out-of-time, trippy lighting, insane clothing, 70's colors, mindfuck glory. The music is pretty amazing too. The whole thing is just really well done.
