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 unable to walk. 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.
"It's a credit to Watts's performance and Ivin's understated direction that this woozy vision of emotional and physical healing sings."

"The Bloom family's willingness to share their story could boost your spirits and serve as a very effective reminder of what we can overcome with the people we love."
