We Bought a Zoo
Based on a true story of a family in ruins.
After his wife dies and his son starts getting in trouble at school Benjamin Mee
decides his family needs a change. In order to start over they house-shop and
find one they love. The only problem is that it's a zoo. A shutdown fixer-upper
zoo. So he buys the whole property, becoming the boss of the current zoo
employees and takes it upon himself to fix it up and open it back up to the
public. Very heart-warming story, it'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry. Matt
Damon is pretty great in a serious role, it was interesting seeing him in
something that wasn't action-oriented. -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
