Based on the internationally bestselling book, A Street Cat Named Bob is a moving and uplifting feel-good true story.
When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.
Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.
Starring Ruta Gedmintas (The Strain, The Incident) Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey, Filth) Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and (of course) Bob, filming took place over six weeks in London, mainly in Covent Garden where James and Bob used to busk.
The film is directed by Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies, Under Fire, Air America, Turner and Hooch), with a script from Tim John (Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde) and Maria Nation (Ice Bound)
