Synopsis

A dark and unique portrait of Glasgow in the 1970s. When a young boy drowns in a canal, the friend who he was with - James - blames himself. But for a while at least, life goes on for James as usual - making the best of things in the council flat he shares with his parents and two sisters, and a friendship with an older girl who is a target of abuse for the local kids. Ratcatcher is a film where mood and visual images are as important as plot, and the results will stay in the mind long after other films have faded.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
