Synopsis

This slapstick comedy animation follows the adventures of mischievous, self-serving squirrel Surly and his dimwitted but loyal rat pal Buddy. Having been banished from the park because of their thieving reputation by a nasty raccoon, the pair attempt a heist of a nut store, which is also the safe house of a human gangster crew who are planning to rob a bank. Their goals intersect in unexpected ways, with a pug dog playing both sides. It's an action-packed film that, set in the '50s, riffs on the film noir genre.

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
