“Lion” is a story about home and family that may tempt viewers into immediately buying a ticket to Tasmania.
The movie is based on a real-life story about Saroo Brierly, who used his childhood memories and Google Maps to track down his birth parents. And although the acting and story are intriguing, anybody would be forgiven for being most impressed by the landscapes featured in the film.
Cast and crew spent eight days traveling around Tasmania to shoot the film’s outdoor scenes, and the result was nothing short of stunning. According to local news outlets, many of the film’s leading actors couldn’t stop admiring the Tasmanian scenery.
The film, starring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, and Rooney Mara, is nominated for four Golden Globes, including Best Picture.
Here are some of the most filming locations featured in “Lion” that are worthy of an award all their own.
