See the movie trailer, photos and blu-ray special features for We Bought a Zoo below. The film tells the true story of how a widower (Damon) and his family used their life savings to buy a dilapidated zoo and restore it to its former glory. Based on the autobiographical memoir "We Bought a Zoo" by Benjamin Mee.
Benjamin Mee (Matt Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children. Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Scarlett Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he's living it in his own backyard.
