Synopsis

Penny whistle playing Felix has just won a scholarship to a private school, but coming from a poorer part of town than the other boys means settling in is not going to be easy. Music is where Felix feels most confident so when he sees the opportunity to take part in the school’s jazz concert he goes in for auditions. The penny whistle doesn’t cut it but having discovered that his late father was a great saxophonist he vows to audition again with a saxophone. Unfortunately his mother hates the idea of Felix following his father’s footsteps so he must learn the instrument in secret with the help of his father’s old band-mates, the Bozza Boys.

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
