Year 8 French film visit
On 2nd March, ten Year 8 pupils went to HOME cinema in Manchester to watch a French film called TOMBOY, which was part of Manchester Film Festival. The comments below show how the pupils found the experience.
On the 2nd March we went to HOME cinema to watch a film called TOMBOY. It was about a girl, Laure, who wanted to be a boy. She told all of her friends that was a boy called Mikael. I really enjoyed the film and I’m glad I could go.
On the 2nd March we went to HOME cinema in Manchester and watched Tomboy. Overall I thought the film was interesting as it touched on topics that may be found as awkward but the film handled them well and made it work in the film. I am grateful that Miss Thomas took us to watch this film. Also this film was very fun to watch as the main protagonists were my age.
I really enjoyed the trip yesterday and it was really fun. Everyone enjoyed it and I am really grateful.
On the 2nd March me and a few other pupils went to the cinema called HOME in Manchester. We went to watch a film called TOMBOY. I could be here all day talking about what we did and I really want to thank the Languages department for taking me and for the whole experience.
Yesterday was fun and exciting. I had a fabulous time and the movie was good. The movie was well-produced and the subtitles were good. I’m happy I understood it. The trip was amazing and I was honoured to be a part of the trip. I hope we do more things like this!
