A STORY AS FRESH AS THE GIRLS IN THEIR MINIS… AND AS TOUGH AS THE KIDS FROM LONDON'S EAST END!

Sidney Poitier makes his indelible mark on this iconic mod relic. Writer/Director, James Cavell, best known for penning The Great Escape, based his film on Guyanese-born British-American writer and teacher, E.R. Braithwaite's 1959 autobiographical novel of the same name. Poitier's Mark Thackery is a recent transplant to London, who out of desperation accepts a temporary position teaching in the slums of the East End — contending with both the realities of a failed social system and a legacy of racism.
