Based on the New York Times bestseller, this movie tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters the fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
Two Savannah kittens, Scribbles and Pearl are flown over from the U.K. to meet the new family and neighbors in Southern Califronia. Once they arrive in their new home adventure, mayhem, and fun begins.

At the end of the movie, during the book signing scene, we can see the Complete Discworld Atlas of Terry Pratchett behind the father of James Bowen and his wife. It's a mistake: the scene takes place in 2012 and the Atlas was published in 2015. See more »
On the UK release, the British Board Of Film Censors card preceding the feature reads 'A Streetcar Named Desire' briefly, before being replaced by the appropriate card for the film. This may have been a glitch peculiar to the cinema. See more »
I Dare You To Leave The Theatre Unhappy After Watching This Gem.
As an avid cat lover I was always going to enjoy this movie. And as a person who myself suffered an addiction, and am in recovery, I totally related to the Lead Character in every way. Whilst dealing with the subject of addiction is a very difficult issue to cover, I thought this movie covered it well. Highlighting the lead character's isolation,, detachment from the outside World and people in general........and the redemption he found by meeting Bob, a wandering cat, who just happened to enter his life.
The touching story line that involved the developing relationship between him and Bob was beautifully told. The cat made him smile again, gave him a reason to live. His social skills with people were not good but with the cat, he became stronger and happier as each day passed.
This was a wonderfully uplifting film I related to on so many levels. Excellent acting, and Bob the cat. was the best of them !
