Full film details

Homeless and a recovering drug addict, James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) is running low on his luck. He’s given a last chance to turn his life around by his support worker, Val (Joanne Froggatt), who helps him to finally be given his own bedsit to live in.

As James attempts to build a life and future for himself by busking in Convent Garden, he struggles to gain any traction as the London crowd passes him by.

Returning home one day, he finds a ginger cat sat outside his door. Thinking it belongs to a neighbour, he ignores the cat and goes to sleep.

Over the next few days, the cat continues to linger outside of his door, and James discovers an infected wound on the animal’s leg. He takes the cat to be treated by the RSPCA and from that point onwards, the two lives become entwined.

Based on the internally best-selling novel of the same name, A Street Cat Named Bob is the remarkable true story of one man and his cat healing and growing together.

Luke Treadaway (Unbroken) stars as James, alongside Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey, Filth) as his support worker. The part of Bob is played by the cat himself, who recreates his extraordinary life for the big screen.
