A Christmas Gift From Bob
Australian Premiere

A heart-warming tale of friendship, A Christmas Gift From Bob is a Christmas-themed follow-up to 2016 crowd-pleaser A Street Cat Named Bob.

Based on the book by former Big Issue seller James Bowen, the first film told the story of how a stray ginger cat changed the life of James (Luke Treadaway, reprising his role from the first film), a homeless London street musician and recovering drug addict, beginning a friendship which transformed both their lives. 

A Christmas Gift From Bob sees James looking back at the last Christmas he and Bob spent scraping a living on the streets in London. As they spend a cold and challenging December on the streets, James draws strength and inspiration from Bob, his friendship helping him get through tough times.

Directed by Charles Martin Smith (Dolphin Tale, A Dog’s Way Home), A Christmas Gift From Bob is a delightful story about how a stray cat helped a man learn the true meaning of that special time of year.
