Science Fiction and Fantasy


English (English subtitles)


In this thought-provoking science fiction thriller set in the not-too-distant-future, humans are divided into two groups - Valids (those born physically perfect through the marvels of science) and In-Valids - born naturally and subject to disease and defect. Vincent is a resentful In-Valid, a cleaner whose imperfections have limited his life choices. In an attempt to fulfil his dream of joining the space mission, he adopts the identity of Jerome, a Valid paralysed in an accident - a ploy that works until a murder threatens his plans.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
