A STREET CAT NAMED BOB 
A recovering drug addict and a stray cat find they've met to give each other another chance at a better life during a cold British winter.
I initially thought it'd be a sappy TV movie where the said cat runs around creating chaos and hilarity ensues until the friendly feline bites the dust in the end leaving one a blubbering mess. Instead it's a precious little film that never gets too silly or dark for it's own good. Neither lead characters beg for pity and instead earn a spot in your heart with their honesty, earnest strength and restrained performances. It's a tough story that doesn't need to be told in such a manner and lets the actions speak for themselves leading you to the same lessons learned.
