Naomi Watts returns to screens this month in Penguin Bloom, a moving Australian film that offers an inspiring start to 2021. The film reflects upon the story of how one magpie helped heal and restore hope to a devastated family—and it’s the remedy we all need now.

Here, read the five most fascinating facts we learned about Watts from her cover story.

She both stars in and also co-produced Penguin Bloom
The English-born, Australian-raised actor plays Sam Bloom in the movie, an Australian woman who became paralysed from the waist down after falling from a balcony in Thailand in 2013. A magpie was Bloom’s unlikely saviour and helped restore hope in her and her family. It’s also the first film Watts has shot since 2013.
