Synopsis

Some adventure stories are all about action, but this one pays attention to the characters. Made by Ken Loach, the director of Kes, it's a tale set in 18th century England, where a Frenchman known as Black Jack is helped to escape by a boy called Tolly, and then the two of them free Belle, a girl being sent to an asylum for the insane, before they all join up with a circus. Adapted from writer Leon Garfield's novel, it's a movie full of great little episodes as the three friends make their way across the country.

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. "
