Synopsis

As an old man lays dying in rural Alabama, his son returns home to see him one final time. He asks his father to tell him the truth behind the elaborate and unlikely stories he has been told since he was a child - but his father insists that every word of his tall tales of circuses, bank robbers, Siamese twins and, yes, very big fish were all real. Acclaimed director Tim Burton's touching and imaginative film slips easily between tense family drama and wonderful fantasy.

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
