A Street Cat Named Bob is a comedy-drama film directed by Roger Spottiswoode, based on the autobiographical book of the same name by James Bowen, and starring LUKE TREADAWAY.

Homeless and a recovering drug addict, James Bowen (played by LUKE) is running low on his luck. He’s given a last chance to turn his life around by his support worker, Val (Joanne Froggatt), who helps him finally gain his own bedsit to live in. As James attempts to build a life and future for himself by busking in Covent Garden, he struggles to gain any traction as the London crowd passes him by. Returning home one day, he finds a ginger cat sitting outside his door. Thinking it belongs to a neighbour, he ignores the cat and goes to sleep. Over the next few days, the cat continues to linger outside his door, and James discovers an infected wound on the animal’s leg. He takes the cat to be treated by the RSPCA and from that point onwards, the two lives become entwined.
