Synopsis

A woman strives to get the best for gifted son in this engaging drama. Young Fred Tate is like any other six-year-old, except for one thing - he's not just smart for his age, he's a genius. But providing stimulation for the super-intelligent Fred is difficult for his working-class mother, Dede, and she seeks help from a child psychologist who runs a summer school for gifted children. The film poses an interesting question about what's best for a child who demonstrates abilities beyond his years - should Fred's talents be nurtured, or should he be allowed to enjoy a normal childhood?

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
