25th March        SCREENING                                   10:00 -11:30

Keeper(90 mins) in association with IFI Education   Recommended age 15+

This year’s French film choice for schools is the sensitive, realistic story of Maxime and Mélanie, a teen couple in love. Maxime is a talented footballer and likely to be selected for trials. Life is good but when Mélanie becomes pregnant, their worlds are rocked. Their parents’ responses are very different, and as the pair try to decide what to do, they feel pressure coming at them from all sides. An honest and heartfelt drama about young people thrust into adulthood, it

poses rich questions for discussion such as ‘who am I’, ‘how do I make decisions’, and ‘who do I want to be?’

Please note: film contains some strong sexual references.
