Based on Guardian columnist and author Benjamin Mee’s incredible true story of uprooting his family to Devon to rescue a perishing Zoo on Dartmoor, it was a story too good for Hollywood to miss. As We Bought A Zoo reaches UK cinemas, Premiere Scene’s Claire and Anthony Bueno were intrigued to find out from the Mee brothers Benjamin & Duncan about life at the Zoo, their investment in education and the ecology and how tinsel town turned their humble tale into a movie starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson! Also in attendance TV stars Kelly Hoppen, Bill Oddie, Sinitta & Vanessa Feltz all walk the red carpet for the Gala Premiere.
