Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln star as Sam and Cameron Bloom in ‘Penguin Bloom’ which is now available to watch on Netflix.
Based on a true story and the book it inspired, it’s the tale of a family recovering from tragedy.
Sam Bloom (Academy Award nominated Naomi Watts) is young mother whose world is turned upside down after a shocking, near-fatal accident leaves her paralyzed. Sam’s husband, (Andrew Lincoln), her three young boys and her mother, are struggling to adjust to their new situation when an unlikely ally enters their world in the form of an injured baby magpie they name Penguin. The bird’s arrival is a welcome distraction for the Bloom family, eventually making a profound difference on Sam’s life, teaching her how to live again.
The stars worked with the real-life couple for the film. In fact, it was filmed in their house.
