Synopsis

In this dark, exciting fantasy, Ember is a vast, self-contained underground world, built generations before as a shelter from some unspecified calamity, and over the years its residents have forgotten its origins and live in cosy, complacent ignorance. However, it was only meant to exist for 200 years and things are beginning to break down, sending the citizens into panic as the lights start to go out. Only plucky teens Doon (Harry Treadaway) and Lina (Saoirse Ronan) realise what is happening and embark on an epic adventure, hampered by corrupt Mayor Cole (Bill Murray), to save their families and friends.

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. "
