SYNOPSIS

Produced over the course of ten years, Roar is an audacious cinematic experiment: a thriller showcasing the majesty and ferocity of African lions, filmed on location amidst dozens of actual untrained cats. The result is a spectacular achievement though often terrifying to watch as actors (not stunt men) flee, wrestle, and come face-to-face with the massive hunters. Writer/director Noel Marshall stars as Hank, a doctor and outspoken naturalist in Africa who allows lions, tigers, cheetahs, and other big cats to roam freely around his remote estate. While away protecting animals from poachers, Hank's family including Marshall's real-life wife and daughter, Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith arrive at his home and are stalked by the massive lions that have overrun the house.
