Synopsis

Hairspray started as a movie comedy about a chubby girl in the 1960s who loved dancing and had a strong sense of social justice. Then it became a Broadway musical, and finally came this movie version of the musical - which got headlines because John Travolta stars as the heroine's mother (that's right, her mother!). In fact, he does a fine job, as do the rest of the cast in a film that has lots of good songs and makes its political points in the sweetest possible way.

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
