Synopsis

Jim Carrey returns to family-friendly movies in this fun tale based on a beloved 1938 children’s book. Mr Popper – divorced and increasingly absent from his children’s lives - is a successful but lonesome New York businessman. This changes dramatically when he inherits six penguins from his explorer father. Showing great care and attention to the arrivals – including the transformation of his expensive apartment into a snowy winter wonderland - Popper finally takes off his work tie and re-learns the joy and importance of parenthood. The penguins – a mixture of live-action and seamless CGI - are undeniably adorable and put even Carey in their shadow.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
