About We Bought A Zoo
A drama about a father who copes with the loss of his wife in an unusual way. Benjamin (Matt Damon) decides on a whim to buy a decrepit zoo just outside of San Diego and moves himself and his two children out there so that they can recuperate from their tragedy and make a new start. The zoo comes supplied with animals who are a long way off from being star attractions, and a staff team whose odd ways take some getting used to. The family need to pull themselves out of their misery if the zoo is to open successfully to the public under the watchful eye of a snotty state inspector. Capable keeper Kelly (Scarlett Johansson) is on hand for practical support, but also takes an interest in Benjamin's healing process.
