Zoo (2017) NYICFF 2018
Based on a true story most people have ever heard, ZOO is a wonderful feel good family film. Beautifully acted and wonderful to look at, this is a film you fall into and go to another time and place. This is also one of those films that will make the kids in the audience bounce at the end and the adults wipe a tear or two from their eyes.
While most assuredly a film for the whole family the film does not shy away from the darkness. While we do not see the actual destruction of the animals, we see enough to know exactly what happens and it breaks your heart. Also heartbreaking is as a result of this being set during war time. And if I say the turn may upset some smaller kids, it's only because I groaned "oh god no" loudly.
Ultimately I love this film. Its just a wonderful little story that is going to delight everyone of every age. Highly recommended When it screens Sunday and March 17th at The New York International Children's Film Festival.
