A Street Cat Named Bob
Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee present A Street Cat Named Bob, on Friday 12 May at Nunney village hall.
A Street Cat Named Bob is a 2016 British family drama film directed by Roger Spottiswoode and written by Tim John and Maria Nation. It is based on the book of same name by James Bowen.
The film stars Luke Treadaway, Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head and Bob the Cat as himself. The film won Best British Film at the UK National Film Awards on 29 March.
Homeless and a recovering drug addict, James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) is running low on his luck. He’s given a last chance to turn his life around by his support worker, Val (Joanne Froggatt), who helps him to finally be given his own flat to live in.
He takes a stray cat to be treated by a charity vet and from that point onwards, the two lives become entwined. James, in learning to care for something other than himself, starts becoming a responsible person and Bob helps him make money busking, in their touching symbiotic relationship.
Bob also acts as a matchmaker of sorts as James develops a romantic relationship with his neighbour Betty.
This is a real feel-good film based on a true story, which combines comedy and drama – even a possible romance. Not just for cat-lovers (although Bob gives a splendid feline performance!). Come and have a heart-warming and enjoyable evening.
A Street Cat Named Bob has a 12A rating. Films rated 12A are suitable for children aged 12 and over. However, people younger than 12 may see a 12A so long as they are accompanied by an adult.
