Synopsis

Military conflict, love and racism are dealt with in exuberantly toe-tapping style in this visually lush screen version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein 1949 musical. Set during the Second World War, it sees romance flourishing on a US forces base in the South Pacific. Not only has young Navy nurse Nellie fallen for middle-aged French plantation owner Emile, but a new officer, Lieutenant Joseph Cable, has also gone gaga for island girl, Liat. Trouble is both the Americans have misguided racial beliefs, making Nellie develop cold feet when she discovers Emile has half-Polynesian children and Joseph get equally anxious worrying about what folks back home will think of his native sweetheart. Will prejudice or love win the day?

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. "
