Film Details




99 minutes


Comedy, Coming of Age


English (English subtitles)


The main character in a comedy is usually a little insecure, or obviously flawed in order to win our sympathy. Ferris Bueller isn't like that: he is a high school student who seems to always get his way. His cheeky yet lovable manner allows him to trick his parents and teachers so he can bunk off school and spend a fantastic day roaming about Chicago with his best friend Cameron and girlfriend Sloane. However, his jealous sister Jeannie and the school principal are far from impressed, and each set out to try and catch Ferris in his mischief. As the three teenagers explore the city, Ferris must stay one step ahead of them, while the community rallies to wish the charming teen a speedy recovery from his supposed sickness.

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. "
