All the feels. Really well done and I'm glad that much of the raw grittiness was kept in for the ...Read more

An incredibly powerful story that touched my heart on so many levels - from a brother who was homeless (who owned a ginger cat), to a father who didn't know how to love his son, and to a breathtaking creature that saw the deepest part of the soul. Thank you, James and Bob, for sharing your ...Read more

I read the book when it came out. This film puts the icing on the cake. Such a feel good and inspiring story. James and Bob rock!

Bob was shown as a real character, rather than just as an animal that happened to be a pet. Well done!

The song was right -- I did need this in my life today. Bless Bob for his astounding talent, and wonderful heart. And James as well, of course! I am richer for being made aware of their story and continuing good work in the world.

Hi Meyre - since we agree on this one, do you have any other favorites? ("This Beautiful Fantastic", and "Hunt For The Wilderpeople" are on the top of my list, along with Bob, of course - love that cat!)

Thank you! I recently watched Maudie, Canadian. at the theatres in Toronto. Also, The Intouchables, French.2012. (Nominated for 1 Golden Globe. starring Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy is possibly the best French movie of the year) I LOVED them :)

Semi professional, well acted by the main character (and the cat), interesting enough to keep the attention most the time of me 9 years-old son.
