Ross and John joined in studio by Saroo and Sue Brierley to talk about Lion movie

It’s a truly incredible real-life story that’s now been turned into a highly-acclaimed film.

And on Thursday, Ross and John met the mother and son it’s based on.

‘Lion’ ? which has received five BAFTA nominations and was nominated for four Golden Globes ? is based on the journey of Saroo Brierley and how he returned to India to find his birth mother and family after he got lost on a train at the age of five.

That led to him being adopted by Sue Brierley and her husband in Australia.

The film hits Australian cinemas from January 19.
