Synopsis

Dustbin Baby is an adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson's best-selling novel about April, a young teen who was abandoned in a dustbin at birth and has grown up in a series of foster homes and children's institutions. After an argument with her current foster mum on her 14th birthday, April runs away and spends the day visiting people and places from her past, ultimately hoping she will find her real mother. The film sensitively deals with bullying, teenage depression and unwanted pregnancy, but Wilson's customary humour means it never feels overworthy or issue-led.

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
