Synopsis

Nelly is a bright half-German, half-American Jewish girl growing up in Berlin, facing up to her impending bat mitzvah and with aspirations to become an astronomer. When she learns of a basketball tournament hosted by the dashing Prinz Edouard, Nelly resolves to get onto the school team in order to meet him. To help her, she enlists the help of Max, a sullen boy next door, agreeing to tutor him in exchange. This is a gentle, but observant comedy, offering a credible take on the traditional odd-couple teen comedy formula, while touching on harder issues around family unity. The film is also an intriguing portrait of growing up in contemporary Germany and learning to enter the world on your own terms.

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
