When did you last cry?

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?

  1. Thanks for sharing your tears Georgie. I’m reading the book at the moment. It takes me ages to read a book! My daughter said that she cried at the end of the film too, but happy sad tears rather than sad sad tears. 🙂
