As a bitter civil war tears apart the lives of his students an isolated English school teacher (House star Hugh Laurie) in Bougainville finds a unique way to inculcate hope; 14-year-old Matilda (Xzannjah) is enthralled by his Dickens-infused disaster survival lessons. The life during wartime tale was directed by Kiwi Andrew Adamson (Shrek) and adapted from the 2006 Booker Prize short-listed Lloyd Jones novel. Adamson spent time in Papua New Guinea as a teenage son to missionary parents. Laurie and Xzannjah won best actor gongs at the 2013 Moa (NZ Film) Awards.

We’ve all lost a lot in recent times. Those losses remind ourselves of the things we can never lose: our minds and our imaginations ... and our great expectations.
– Mr Watts (Hugh Laurie)
