Synopsis

Although the characters share their names with an ill-fated couple from a Biblical epic, this Samson and Delilah are aboriginal 14-year-olds from a tiny, dirt-poor community in the middle of Australia. Their lives are bleak, even before something terrible happens and the two run off to the town of Alice Springs. There is very little dialogue, and a lot of the meaning is carried in the music that the characters listen to. The two non-professionals who play the lead characters do an amazing job, providing a look at truly isolated way of life - but equally importantly, it's a classic love story.

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. "
