About the Movie

Based on the international best-selling book, A STREET CAT NAMED BOB is a moving and uplifting feel-good true story. When James Bowen finds an injured ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he has no idea just how much his life is about to change. James lives hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needs is a pet. Yet James can’t resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christens Bob. He slowly nurses Bob back to health and then sends the cat on his way, imagining he will never see him again. But Bob has other ideas. Soon the two are inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.

Fresh: A rewardingly unassuming, tough and tender portrait of a drug-addicted London busker whose ill-fated life takes a surprising turn after a ginger tabby turns up in his kitchen. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, Nov 17, 2016

Rotten: Cute little fellow, but unfortunately, the film in which he stars is little more than catnip. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 16, 2016

Special movie of how angels come in all shapes, sizes, and species. Love the tagline: "sometimes it takes 9 lives to save one". This movie is a must see. Based on a true story and very up lifting. Luke Treadaway (who plays James Bowen) and Bob (played by the real Bob) were both spectacular in their performances. This biopic story of hope will definitely warm your heart and your soul.

Loved this film! Heart Warming

This movie really touched my heart. The bond between the two is really inspiring. I gave it five 5 Stars!

Love it!

Great from the start. Being a pet owner myself and also having my issues in life... this film hit home. Highly recommended.
