Wow. Really stunning. based on a true story of four lions who escaped from the Baghdad Zoo during the bombing of the city in 2003, but it goes way beyond that to imagine their lives and stories. They each have distinct personalities--it's written realistically, pretty much, except that the lions talk to each other :-) Really packs a punch. "The Lion King" it is not, but it does have an adorable boy cub. :-)
