Brierley's bestselling memoir "A Long Way Home" told how he used Google Maps to find his long lost village and family in India, after being adopted and raised in Australia, Now that story is being retold by Hollywood in a new film called "Lion", from director Garth Davis, starring Dev Patel as Brierley, along with Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman. www.lionmovie.com
