ZOO (Chicago International Film Festival Chicago Illinois USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Zoo—good older child’s watch—serves a plate of bitter-sweetness with its simple, but very well-scripted storyline. The story not only is interesting, but the acting is quite well-done and serves a nice portion of Toby Jones, well-known for his part in Harry Potter, Chamber of Secrets. This movie may not be amazing or particularly notable, but is a very good, easy-on-the-mind watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Interesting piece of World War II shows how war affects all pieces of life to include animal life within zoo environments.
