Psych Cinema: Lion

Lion

***VIDEO CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Welcome to Psych Cinema, Shrink Tank’s video series where I explore the psychological aspects of the films I watch and love.

Lion, the new Gareth Davis film starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman, was one of the best films of 2016 and was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.  In my Psych Cinema video, my psychological breakdown of a film centered around abandonment and adoption, includes:

  • Attachment and abandonment
  • Guilt and empathy
  • Identity development

I hope you enjoy Psych Cinema and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
