Coming up to the UK release of ‘ZOO’ on the 29th of June, here are a few great reviews:
Writer-director Colin McIvor’s “Zoo” is a lovely, true-life memory piece…
…with McIvor layering in depth, dimension and grace. Period re-creation is also first rate and, for animal fans, there’s eye candy aplenty in the form of giraffes, lions, chimps, flamingos and, of course, one soulful elephant.
LA Times – Gary Goldstein
In fact, the one element of the film that DOES hit you, as an adult, is the production design. This is a gorgeous film that does a tremendous job of recreating 1940’s Belfast…and the tension and anxiety that comes with those horrible times. Secondly, the script is actually quite good. The story flows, ebbs and excites just as an old-fashioned film should.
NoSpoilerReviewz – Jason Singer
Zoo is a heartfelt story that is a mix of emotions full of humor, love, loss, and hope that endures even the tribulations of war.
Ashley Menzel – We Live Entertainment
If you’re searching for a feel-good family film, I recommend this family drama, set in Belfast – it’s heartwarming with a sense of purpose.
