Adapted from Benjamin Mee’s memoir as he moved to Dartmoor, restoring a wildlife zoo. This being a Hollywood film, we’ve been transfered over to California.
We have Matt Damon playing a single man recovering from the death of wife and being a single dad to two children. Realising he needs to change the atmosphere, he buys a house in the Californian countryside which also has a zoo. Clue various life warming messages that could either tickle your heart or make you lose the will to live.
This just looks like typical Hollywood schmaltz that could make any feel angry. But never judge an entire based on a trailer. We Brought A Zoo is released in December.
