Director Cameron Crowe's Backstory

By
As a director Cameron Crowe first won over America's heart with the classic film Say Anything. Now, before his next movie We Bought a Zoo comes to theaters, we're re-visiting Cameron's impressive film catalogue.
Based on the book We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Young Family, a Broken Down Zoo and the 200 Zoo Animals that Changed Their Lives Forever by Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo tells the true story of a single dad (Matt Damon) who decides his family needs a fresh start, so he and his two children move to the most unlikely of places -- a zoo. With the help of an eclectic staff, and with many misadventures along the way, the family works to return the dilapidated zoo to its former wonder and glory.
