The Wharf - - What's On -

(PG) 118mins One man’s ex­tra­or­di­nary true-life odyssey – to lo­cate the birth mother and older brother he lost at the age of five – pro­vides the in­spi­ra­tion for Garth Davis’ life-af­firm­ing drama, which looks set for Os­car recog­ni­tion.

Screen­writer Luke Davies el­e­gantly cuts back and forth be­tween trau­matic events more than 20 years apart to ac­com­pany the lead char­ac­ter on his seem­ingly hope­less quest.

Brit Dev Pa­tel is ter­rific as Sa­roo, who is un­ex­pect­edly trans­planted from Khandwa to Aus­tralia.
