Synopsis

At a summer camp in the US, identical twin girls Annie and Hallie are astonished to meet each other for the first time. With neither knowing that they had a sister, let alone a twin, they learn about their shared history by telling each other their story: their parents divorced when they were babies, with each raising one child and agreeing to never know the other. Annie lives in London with their mother Elizabeth, a wedding dress designer, while Hallie resides in California on a vineyard with their father, Nick. With the sisters desperate to spend time with the parent they’ve never before met, they decide upon an audacious plan: to swap places with each other. But if they are to deceive Elizabeth and Nick for any considerable amount of time they will need to be convincing, which involves learning accents, painful piercings, and an awful lot of learning about the other twin’s hobbies and habits. After they switch and each enjoys a wonderful time with their long-lost parent, the twins wonder whether they could go one further and somehow convince their parents to reunite.

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. "
