New film "Lion" shows complexity of international adoption

A new film entitled Lion is set to debut in theaters on November 25. The film, starring Australian-American actress Nicole Kidman, is based on a non-fiction book by an Indian-born author that tells the story of his birth in India, separation from his mother, life with adoptive parents in Australia and the search to locate his biological mother.

Kidman is a good fit for her role in the movie because she adopted two children of her own in the 1990s during her marriage to actor Tom Cruise. Her life as a twice-married dual citizen actress with adopted children shows the custodial complexities of adoptive parenthood. Likewise, her role in the film Lion could spark interest in international adoption.
