Synopsis

A young Bangladeshi woman Nazneen comes to England to settle in London's East End, trapped in a loveless arranged marriage and isolated in a new, strange country where both racial prejudice and religious fanaticism seem to be on the rise. This adaptation of Monica Ali's Man Booker Prize-nominated novel is a vivid, tragicomic tale of modern immigrant life, lifting a lid on lives that are invisible to many and looking at the capital through Nazneen's fresh eyes as she slowly begins to flourish in her new surroundings.

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
