Day 28 Blog Challenge – “The last time I cried”.
I don’t like talking about things like this. I’m not a very demonstrative person and I like to keep my feelings to myself, I certainly don’t like showing others that I’m crying. It takes a lot to make me cry, but as I’ve got older, I seem to have a little tear in my eye more often. Especially when watching films.
The other week I went with my daughter to see the film – “A Street Cat Called Bob”. A typically British film, not a big blockbuster, I don’t even know if will be shown in other countries. It’s based on a true story of a homeless guy called James, an ex-drug addict, who earns money by busking in London. He finds a stray cat, or rather the cat finds him, and they develop a wonderful relationship.
The cat, who he names Bob, goes everywhere with him. Their story was first told a few years ago in a very successful book, which sold millions of copies, and then recently made into a film, with actors playing the main roles, but Bob the cat was played by himself! The film has a happy ending, and I admit I did shed a tear right at the end!
When the film first came out, it was given a royal premiere, attended by Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. She met the real James, and of course Bob!
Have you seen the film? What did you think?
