The Silent One is the 1984 film about a baby who washes up on the beach of a South Pacific Island.
This film is perfect for exploring themes such as prejudice, loyalty, friendship and betrayal.
It also has excellent examples of characterisation, plot and setting.
I have included teaching notes for a study of some of these themes aimed at Stage 3.
The story has aspects which would be an excellent accompaniment to a study of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
