A Street Cat named BOB

This film is suitable for people aged 12 years and over (Classification 12A).

Based on his autobiography, this is a tale about James Bowen (Luke Treadaway),

a recovering drug addict living on the streets of London.

He meets a stray ginger cat who he names Bob and who changes his life.

This is the true story of how one man and his cat overcame adversity,

becoming inspirational figures to many in the process.

Contains some strong language.
