Synopsis

Shocking for its time - its story involves a pregnant teenage girl who shares a flat with an openly gay man - this drama has lasted well because it lets its characters live and breathe. Jo has been trailing after her mother, who shuffles between unsuitable men and flats not fit to live in, and then she gets pregnant. Shelagh Delaney was only 19 when she wrote the original play on which A Taste of Honey is based, and it's her brilliant words plus characters who are easy to warm to that make this such a memorable film.

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
