Synopsis

Based on the popular children's book by Roald Dahl. Nine-year-old orphan Luke is looked after by his grandmother, who tells him stories about witches - the most important detail being that they hate children. He thinks they're just fairy tales until they go to a hotel on holiday and stumble across a witches' convention. Luke uncovers their wicked plot, but they've got a few tricks up their sleeve, including turning him into a mouse. Will he be able to stop them?

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
