In 2013, two Oscar nominees Samantha Bloom Naomi Watts, her husband Cameron (Andrew Lincoln of The Walking Dead) and their three children left their native Australia for a holiday in Thailand. While enjoying the view, Sam fell from the ceiling onto a rotten fence that broke his back in two places. Paralyzed from the chest, Sam is a stranger, surfer and traveler for a life like no other. He spends months in a depression that questions who he really is in the world and in his family.
After a few weeks, Penguin has fully recovered and is learning to fly. Prompting Sam to want to do something for himself. started with canoe lessons. Blooms goes to Jan’s house for dinner with a teacher like his sister Sam Kylie (Leeanna Walsman) and Sam Gaye (Rachel House) for Sam’s birthday. While Jan and Cameron argue about Sam’s new life and his responsibilities to him, the penguin is attacked by two larger birds and then flies away.
Penguin Bloom has been adopted by the family. In its own way, the penguin gives Sam and his loved ones the strength they need to get through difficult times. If the proposal sounds cheesy and outdated, let me tell you that Penguin Bloom is based on a true story. This is one of the true stories of hope and kindness that will make you believe in miracles. Naomi Watts really got into the role. He described the despair and anger of someone who had had a life-changing accident.
Australian author Bradley Trevor Greive’s book with photographs by Cameron Bloom reflects an emotionally difficult time for the family. Although he and his three children try to help Bloom, they realize that Bloom is staying away. He wrote in The Guardian: “I don’t pretend to be the most religious member of the family, but not only do we offer the best possible medical advice, but we also pray to everyone who listens to us and asks for help.
Penguin Bloom’s feelings are more in her beauty than the real story, which unfortunately becomes a blind spot for Ivin. If the movie had more structure it would be fine for me and would end abruptly. But it’s clear that Watts and Lincoln signed up on the movie because they believed in the Penguin and Bloom family story. Which I love to watch. Watch reruns on Penguin Bloom are valuable. And you may even want to read the book on which this gripping story is based.
Together with cameraman Sam Chiplin, Ivin creates the conditions for a defining family holiday in Thailand with a vivid and impressionistic image: diving into the pool, strolling around the market, fireworks at night. But as he climbed the stairs to the roof to enjoy the beautiful view. Sam leaned against the overhanging wooden railing and let it fall to the floor. We saw it go down several times during the scan. Which gave us a different perspective than when we looked at the family dynamics.
