Storyline

Looking for Lions is the story of Ray and Mia, two young lovers struggling to get by, living at his cousin's place, while working minimum wage jobs. When Ray lands a high-paying job as a courier for a private company, it looks like their problems are finally behind them, but instead they are plunged into a dangerous and clandestine world of illicit activity. Emmett Dawes has always been a reliable worker, a good friend and a devoted husband, but when his wife falls ill with heart disease, his world is turned upside down. Between nursing his wife through her final days, support groups and working to pay off massive medical bills, every day is struggle. At the end of his rope, Emmett is shown an opportunity to save his wife and he is just desperate enough to take it. His last ditch effort sends Mia and Ray on a harrowing job that will put their love to the ultimate test and leave them changed forever. Written by TMEPR AQ

Haunting and Romantic
3 November 2014 | by jenxdoSee all my reviews

This movie is a haunting, gripping portrayal of innocence and love. It alludes to noir while not over reaching and I appreciate that as an avid film goer. Looking for Lions is sanguine and elegant. While not for the tame of heart, it is very much for any heart.

Todd Julian's puppy eyes have a chemistry with Chelsae Gillian that puts Edward to shame. And we're not talking about a love story. Looking for Lions is about sacrifice. Without giving to much away, I was tearing up very early on during the film. Some love stories are short. Some are epic. Some love stories aren't about love at all but about the sacrifice that it takes and the feeling therein. And there's something so haunting (almost ghostlike) about those kinds of love stories that resonates so deeply with me when I go to the movies.
