Synopsis

It is 1850 and Tom, a young apprentice to a chimney sweep, is falsely accused of theft at a grand house in the country. As he tries to escape, he falls into a nearby river and is assumed to have drowned. But for Tom, a wonderful adventure is only just beginning, as he befriends the various creatures that live beneath the water. A winning combination of live action and animation, adapted from the children's book by Charles Kingsley.

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. "
