Interview with Saroo and Sue Brierley – Inspirations for the Film Lion – The Last New Wave

On this special episode of The Last New Wave, I was able to sit down with Saroo and Sue Brierley, the people who have inspired the Garth Davis directed film Lion. In this interview we discuss how Saroo’s inspirational story was transferred to the screen, as well as discussing the importance of adoption in Australia.

This interview was recorded in the Outdoor section of Luna Leederville, so there is a bit of background noise, but hopefully that doesn’t disrupt from what is an interesting interview. Many thanks to the folks at Luna for allowing us to utilise their space to record.

For further information about adoption and the film Lion, check out the films website here, or read about the adoption process in Australia here.

Find out more about Saroo’s journey, and his book A Long Way Home on his website here.

Listen to our review of the film Lion here:

Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
