Day 7: A movie that makes me happy
We Bought A Zoo
First, yes, I know this is a tearjerker. Still, this story ends with a great smile on your face. I can assure you of this.
We Bought a Zoo is based on a true story and be honest here, how great would it be if your dad would buy a zoo? Matt Damon plays Benjamin, a dad to a teenage son and an adorably little girl. He wants to get away from his normal life, which makes him think of his deceased wife all the time. So he decides to purchase (and then also run) a zoo.
But this is not just about the zoo. This story is about family and love and hanging on. Matt Damon is always improving as an actor and you can certainly tell in this movie. This movie is inspirational and great for a family movie night. With its beautiful scenes, the music and the animals, you won’t get bored. You will be taken away of your breath.
