The story behind Australia’s most famous swoopy boi has been given the big screen treatment, and you may need tissues for the new trailer.
Penguin Bloom tells the true story of Sam Bloom (Academy Award® nominated Naomi Watts) a young mother whose world is turned upside down after a near-fatal accident leaves her paralysed. Sam’s husband, (Andrew Lincoln), her three young boys and her mother (Academy Award® nominated Jacki Weaver), 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 in the family’s life.
Penguin Bloom is directed by Glendyn Ivin and is in cinemas January 21.
