Lion tells the extraordinary true story of Saroo Brierley, who was born in India but adopted by an Australian couple after he was separated from his family.

When he was five years old, he got lost on a train travelling away from his home. Years later, living in safety and security in Australia, he yearns to reunite with his family, and decides to use Google Earth to track them down. But his memories are hazy, and it could take years.

Based on Saroo’s book of his experiences, ‘Lion’ is a critically-acclaimed true story that would be almost impossible to believe if it hadn’t actually happened.

DIRECTOR Jack Gold

ORIGINAL NOVEL The Naked Civil Servant by Quentin Crisp

SCREENPLAY Philip Mackie

Venue – Bridport Art Centre 

Based on Quentin Crisp’s 1968 autobiography, The Naked Civil Servant stars John Hurt as Crisp, an outrageous flamboyant gay man who publicly declared his homosexuality during the brutally homophobic and misogynistic England of the 1930s and ’40s — a time when this being homosexual was still an offense punishable by imprisonment in Great Britain. The film made for British and American public television broadcasts tells of Crisp’s coming of age and growing into old age in conservative England.

Le mépris. That’s contempt in French, and it’s the feeling that Camille has for her writer boyfriend Paul during the time he’s summoned to Rome’s Cinecittà film studios and the stunning island of Capri to help Austrian-born Hollywood director Fritz Lang (playing himself) and coarse American producer Prokosch (Jack Palance) improve their movie version of Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’.A sumptuously stylish study of a rocky marriage and fraught professional relationships.
