Synopsis

On the surface a chocolate-box musical drama set in bygone days, this is actually a moving and often rather sharp portrait of family life, with some wonderful songs. Judy Garland (famous for playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz) may be in bloomers and hair ribbons - but cast as young Esther Smith, whose father wants to move the family away from their home town just as she's fallen in love, she's dealing with the universal problems of boys, social restrictions and the sacrifices involved when your life is not your own.

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
