To Walk With Lions

Theatrical Release Date:  26 May 2000
Home Ent. Release Date:  18 Oct 2004
Running Time:  110mins


Legendary conservationist George Adamson of Born Free fame (played by Richard Harris) runs a lion rehabilitation programme in Kenya. Tony Fitzjohn (John Michie), a wild, penniless, young Englishman becomes his assistant and together they take dozens of captive lions from around the world to return them to the wild. George, childless, finds a son in Tony. As an orphan, Tony finds the father and love he never had. This action/adventure movie depicts the growing brutality of poachers and the danger to the lions from the local herdsman. The events in the film are based on fact, including George Adamson's murder in 1989 by warring bandits, known as "shifta", in pursuit of his land.
