Storyline

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, the film tells the story of Sam Bloom (Academy Award® nominated Naomi Watts) a young mother whose world is turned upside down after a shocking, near-fatal accident leaves her paralyzed. Sam's husband, (Andrew Lincoln), her three young boys and her mother (Academy Award® nominated Jacki Weaver), are struggling to adjust to their new situation when an unlikely ally enters their world in the form of an injured baby magpie they name Penguin. The bird's arrival is a welcome distraction for the Bloom family, eventually making a profound difference on Sam's life, teaching her how to live again.

Quotes

[first lines]
Noah Bloom: [narrating] Mom lives the ocean. She always has. Mom meet dad on the beach when there were teenagers. They've been together ever since. That's me when I was four. Rueben's my middle brother. He's always been annoying. And then Oli, lucky last. And that's us, the Blooms.
[family photo]
Noah Bloom: Everything was pretty much perfect. But then last year happened. Us kids wanted to go to Disney Land. But mom and dad chose Thailand instead. I liked Thailand.
