Penguin Bloom Comes To Netflix

In 2013, Samantha Bloom, her husband Cameron, played by Andrew Lincoln, and their three sons left their home in Australia for a holiday in Thailand. While enjoying a view, Sam, played by two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts, fell off a rooftop, breaking her vertebrae in two places.

Paralyzed from the chest down, Sam — a lifelong outdoorswoman, surfer, and traveler — was unrecognizable to herself and spent long months in a depression that made her question who she could be in the world and her own family. 

A year later, her children brought home a wounded baby magpie they found. Warily eyeing the black-and-white bird the kids affectionately named “Penguin,” Sam bonded with the household’s new member, beginning a process of emotional healing that surprised her husband and sons, her mother, and herself. Penguin Blooms tells the amazing true story of renewal that occurred when a woman whose life seemed shattered found hope and purpose in her family’s love — and in a bird on its own journey of recovery.

Penguin Bloom arrives on Netflix January 27th, 2021!
