WE BOUGHT A ZOO, is an upcoming comedy drama film directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous), starring Matt Damon, Thomas Haden Church, Colin Ford, Scarlett Johansson, Desi Lydic, Patrick Fugit, Maggie Elizabeth Jones, and Elle Fanning. The film is based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee about how the author and his family used their life savings to buy Dartmoor Zoological Park, a dilapidated zoo, replete with 200 exotic animals facing destruction, in the English countryside.
This cute educational featurette focuses on child actor Maggie Elizabeth Jones who, playing a 6 years old motherless girl named Rosie Mee in the film. Rosie is a loving and disarmingly adorable child, even with the death of her mother, which she seems to handle better than her father (played by Matt Damon) and brother (played by Colin Ford). She’s an old soul and is able to share her love for just about everything, especially the animals at the zoo.
