"A Street Cat Named Bob"
Who said man’s best friend must be a dog? In director Roger Spottiswoode’s British fact-based dramedy A Street Cat Named Bob, a drug addict unexpectedly finds meaning in his life when he takes in the stray orange tabby that breaks into his new apartment. Attack the Block’s Luke Treadaway plays street musician James Bowen, whose bond with his ginger cat Bob helped him kick heroin and gained him fame as the co-author of the international best-sellers “A Street Cat Named Bob,” “The World According to Bob” and the picture book “My Name is Bob.” Bob the cat plays himself in the film. A Street Cat Named Bob opened Nov. 18 at the Regal Arbor in Austin. Roger Spottiswoode previously directed Terror Train, Under Fire, The Best of Times, Shoot to Kill, Turner & Hooch, Air America, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, Tomorrow Never Dies, The 6th Day, Ripley Under Ground, and the HBO adaptation of And the Played On. He also edited two films by director Sam Peckinpah, Straw Dogs and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, and was one of the writers of 48 Hrs.
