Synopsis

This superbly acted adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling novel is an attempt to deal with the trauma of the 9/11 attacks on the US World Trade Centre. Oskar is a solitary but gifted 11-year-old who it’s thought may have Asperger’s. After his father dies in one of the towers that collapsed on 9/11, Oskar discovers a key in an envelope labelled "Black" among his dad’s belongings. Knowing his dad’s penchant for explorer games, he becomes convinced a message has been left hidden somewhere in New York, and begins a journey through all five boroughs to make sense of his grief. A great film to kick off discussions about loss.

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
