Mean Creek deals with the disturbing issue of bullying. George, the school bully, torments Sam. When it gets too much for him, Sam tells his older brother, and the two hatch a plan to punish the bully. Enlisting the help of friends, the plan seems perfect - until all involved begin to realise that George only plays tough because he's a lonely kid with dyslexia who just wants to be liked. Despite its troubling subject matter, Mean Creek is a powerful and impressive coming of age movie.

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
