Synopsis

Three wildly different people learn about love and friendship in this story of acceptance and trust. Writer Melvin is unfriendly, rude and suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder - and he's also very lonely. His life is turned upside down when his neighbour Simon is subjected to a homophobic attack, and Melvin has to care for his pet dog. The one person Melvin can tolerate, waitress Carol, has her own problems as her son is ill. Circumstances lead them all to become grudgingly - and then not-so-grudgingly - dependent on one another, in this heart-warming story that always has a sarcastic one-liner up its sleeve.

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. "
