Touching, moving...
17 February 2004 | by (B'ham) – See all my reviews

The touching and moving sequal to "Born Free". "Living Free" sees the exellent Nigel Davenport as George Adamson and Susan Hampshire as his wife Joy Adamson. After the death of Elsa the Adamsons have to look after her orphaned cubs and when they start wreaking havok on a nearby villiage the Adamsons have little choice but to move them hundreds of miles away to live in peace at a game reserve but catching them prooves to be a big problem. Anybody who has ever seen "Born Free" will realise what a truely touching storey the tale of Elsa is. Based on a true story this sequal to "Born Free" will have you laughing and crying by the end.
