Goodbye Mr Tom

When we got to school, we had to go to an other class to watch a film. We got to watch Goodbye Mr Tom. It was set in world war two and was about a boy called Jimmy, he lived in London but then moved to an other country. There was also a very Grump old man who was forced to take care of Jimmy and then at the end, Jimmy and Mr Tom had a great life together. Jimmies Mum wanted him to stay in at home for a while and she was very nasty to him. She even had an other baby called Trudy ; her Mum was even shouting and punishing her. Jimmies mother locked them behind a door and then Jimmies Mother ran away and left them in there. Sadly, Trudy had passed away and Jimmy was badly injured.

I liked this film because it had a little message behind it what I thought was, your parent should take are of you in a loving way.

There was nothing I would change in the film at all.

I think this film should be watched by Children over 9.

    This is the film of a story by a lovely lady called Michelle Magorian. The story is very moving because the characters are so full. Did it shock you when Trudy was dead, Eva? I think you’re right – little children would be too upset by some of the things in this story and film.

    The film was great but it was kind of sad too.

    The film was very good but I agree with Jadryl at the same time
