Quick review on 'we bought a zoo'
It was always been a dream of mine to own a zoo, which I know will never happen, but I thought it would be lovely to watch this dream in a film. This film had me in tears from the start, it is such a simple romantic fairy tale story.
Set in Southern California, a father moves his young family to the countryside to renovate and re-open a struggling zoo. featuring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
The film is actually based on a real zoo, Dartmoor Zoo park www.dartmoorzoo.org.uk/
and the story is based on how the owner of the zoo came about owning the zoo.
I don't want to give too much away at all, because you really do need to sit down, grab a cuppa and put it on for a good hour or so.
