We Bought a Zoo
Rarely do I watch a movie that just feels custom made for me, but this is one of those movies. My wife and I watched this last night and we loved every minute of it. The cast is amazing (especially young Maggie Jones, who plays Damon’s daughter).
I never go too far into details of great movies because I think the less you know, the more you’ll really get out of watching it, but I will say that I have never seen a movie successfully use every single way to make the viewer cry. Damon was great as the widower father trying to understand his dark-minded son. I think the most interesting part about this whole film is the fact that it has so many layers that seamlessly blend instead of some movies that wind up tripping all over itself because it does too much.
This one is 2 hours, so get to it when you have some time. Do watch it, though, because I think you’ll walk away feeling really good.
