Put me down with the KCLS patron that loved "Zoo"! The love of animals is especially important to children. Zoo's may be most children's favorite outing with their family. Now imagine if these very precious animals were threaten by war. Simply a precious true story!

Did not get past the first fifteen minutes - not suitable for younger children. What happens at the zoo is appalling.

I thought it was going to be another kid's movie and that I'd probably lose interest after the first ten minutes. However, this movie got my interest from the very first minute. The narration was very well done. Build up, sets, acting, directing, lighting...everything was really well done. What I really like about this movie was that the actors looked so...well...normal. None of that glam up stuff we typically get from Hollywood where everybody somehow seems to have stepped out of some fashion magazine or hardcore workout gym. This everyday-looking actors and scenes just made the move very endearing. The excellent acting and directing made this a movie that just drew me in.

The plot and directing wove all the different elements very well into one cohesive whole. This movie has a great beginning, a very interesting middle, and a satisfying ending which brought closure. And to boot, it's all based on a true story.

Go watch this movie. Perhaps you'd be as pleasantly surprised as I was. Good family movie. Good date movie. Good movie for all occasions.

A cute and sweet period film. I had no idea Ireland was a target for German bombs.

Good movie based on actual events. What this movie does is emphasize how war brings needless destruction to seemingly everything if that concept needs emphasis. Two air raids by the Nazis in Belfast accomplished nothing militarily and ended up effecting zoo animals and a group of children’s lives forever.

Based on a true story, hard to imagine these kids could have done this. A very pleasant find.
