Synopsis

For 20 years aliens, known as prawns, have been on earth, segregated from humans and living in refugee camps. Wikus Van De Merwe is the enthusiastic bureaucrat charged with evicting them. Copley does a brilliant job moving seamlessly from comic touches to action heroics, while the film's documentary style and incisive skewering of apartheid issues raises the film well above your average sci-fi blockbuster.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
