Hollywood comes to Bangor

In April we were thrilled to host the actors and production crew from the "The Lion". The movie tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, who was separated from his family as a young boy and adopted from an Indian orphanage at the age of five by Hobart couple Ian and Sue Brierley. The film is adapted from his book about the experience of finding his family using childhood memories and Google Earth.

The film starring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel and David Wenham has scenes that were filmed at Bangor, and it was a pleasure to meet the cast and crew, and provide oysters for their lunch. The small Indian boys who play the young Saroo and his brother tasted their first oysters and gave them the thumbs up!

We cannot wait to see the film, which will be released in 2016.
