They say truth is stranger than fiction. Based on a memoir, We Bought a Zoo follows single father Matt Damon as he purchases a dilapidated zoo and moves his family there to refurbish it. While the book's author (Benjamin Mee) and his family reopened the dilapidated Dartmoor Zoological Park in England, director Cameron Crowe moves the story from England to California, saving Damon and co-stars Scarlett Johansson, Thomas Hayden Church and Elle Fanning from having to don English accents.
