Dev Patel & Nicole Kidman at the London Film Festival premiere of Lion

On Wednesday night Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman came to the London Film Festival premiere of their new movie Lion, in which Patel plays Saroo Brierley, an Indian who searches for his real family years after being adopted by Australians, lead by Kidman. It looks amazing and emotional and I can’t wait to see it at the festival.

Premieres with only two main cast members are a struggle because there are not enough people to go around so while they did do a decent amount of press between them, neither of them reached the end of the line where I was stood. However, Patel got closest which is how I got decent pics. Kidman never came remotely near my section and when she walked up the carpet, there were so many other people on it, I didn’t get a clear picture. Sad times.

Kidman sincerely thanked everyone for coming out and she spent a lot of time signing for fans and taking selfies, as did Patel, who seemed very excited to be presenting his movie to his hometown crowd. He was very enthusiastic about his face being on the movie poster plastered around the red carpet.
