Jacqueline Wilson will attend this screening and introduce the film.
Born deaf, Mandy is mute for most of her childhood. As she reaches school age her family, is in danger of breaking up. Christine, Mandy's mother, has heard of a residential school for the oral education of the deaf, where the children are taught to lip-read and, through the identification of objects, to speak - but her husband, Harry, wishes to have her home-schooled.
Age Suitability: 10+
