Discuss some of the following points with another person, or jot down your thoughts.
- Discuss the poster at the beginning. What is it advertising? What do you know about 'Freakshows' at fairs?
- Discuss and describe the setting. How is the setting, the caravan and the weather mimicking the mood?
- Stop on the still life at the beginning of the film. What does this tell us about the characters?
- Why do you think the film maker has chosen black and white?
- What does the boy wish for? Are these easily achievable?
- What do you think of his father?
- What do you think of the people who go to see him and call him names?
