Paper Tigers follows

six troubled teens over

the course of a year at

Lincoln Alternative High

School in rural Walla

Walla, Washington.

Considered a last chance before dropping

out, many students come to Lincoln

with a history of behavioral problems,

truancy, and substance abuse.

Then, in 2010, Principal Jim Sporleder

learned about the science of what a

rough childhood does to a developing

brain. “Stressed brains can’t learn” was

what he took away from an educational

conference. He returned to his school

convinced that traditional punishments

like suspension were only exacerbating

the problems of the students there.

Sporleder says: “I was hunting everywhere

for the curriculum. It’s not a

curriculum. So it was trying to figure

out, how do you take this theory and

put it into practice?”

Sporleder invited the staff, as well as the

students, to learn about the landmark

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)

Study, which shows that stressful events

during childhood—like divorce,domestic

violence, or living with someone with a

mental illness—massively increases the

risk of problems in adulthood. Problems

like addiction, suicide and even heart

disease have their roots in childhood

experience. Suspension became a last

resort as the school formed an in-school

suspension program, keeping the kids

in contact with the staff and caught up

with their homework. They also established

a health center on campus so the

students would have ready access to

pediatricians and mental health counselors.

The biggest challenge for the

teachers was to consider the source of

the kids’ behavior. Science teacher Erik

Gordon realizes: “The behavior isn’t

the kid. The behavior is a symptom of

what’s going on in their life.”

Told with intimate vérité and diary cam

footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to

what the latest developmental science is

proving: that one caring adult can help

break the cycle of adversity in a young

person’s life. We follow students like

Aron, a senior who avoids eye contact

and barely speaks in class; freshman

Kelsey, who struggles with meth addiction

and abusive relationships; and

Steven, a senior who has been in and

out of juvenile hall since junior high

for fights and threatening teachers. As

the teachers slowly gain their students’

trust, they hear harrowing tales of physically

abusive and negligent parents,

homelessness, sexual abuse… The list

goes on.

Despite the upheaval in their home lives,

the students find the support they need

at Lincoln to make academic progress,

and find less destructive ways of coping.

They also find hope for becoming

healthy and productive adults as they go

out into the world.

Peter Jackson, best known for directing The

Lord of the Rings trilogy, has created a new

film using original footage from Imperial

War Museums’ extensive archive, much of it

previously unseen, alongside BBC and IWM

interviews with servicemen who fought in

the conflict. Footage has been colourised,

converted to 3D and transformed with

modern production techniques to present

never before seen detail.

They Shall Not Grow Old was given its Royal

World Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival

on 16 October, attended by Peter Jackson and

the Duke of Cambridge. The simulcast included

a special post screening Q&A with Jackson,

hosted by film critic Mark Kermode. The film

was simultaneously screened in 2D and 3D to

cinemas, schools and special venues across the

UK, as well as its TV broadcast premier on BBC

Two on 11 November.

The First World War proved to be a landmark

in cinema history – the first time that the

horrors of war could be caught on camera.

Many hours of dramatic footage were filmed

on the battlefields, capturing the realities of the

conflict in remarkable and unprecedented detail.

This footage provided the public at home with

astonishing access to the frontline: The Battle of

the Somme, a documentary film produced with

the cooperation of the War Office, was seen by

an estimated 20 million Britons in its first six

weeks of release.

A documentary about World

War I with never-before-seen

footage to commemorate the

centennial of Armistice Day, and

the end of the war.

It’s a Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life is a

1946 American Christmas

fantasy drama film produced

and directed by Frank Capra,

based on the short story and

booklet The Greatest Gift,

which Philip Van Doren Stern

wrote in 1939 and published

privately in 1943. The film is

one of the most beloved in

American cinema, and has

become traditional viewing

during the Christmas season.

The film stars James Stewart as George

Bailey, a man who has given up his

dreams to help others, and whose

imminent suicide on Christmas Eve

brings about the intervention of his

guardian angel, Clarence Odbody

(Henry Travers). Clarence shows

George all the lives he has touched, and

how different life in his community of

Bedford Falls would be if he had never

been born.

the production cost, a figure it did not

come close to achieving on its initial

release. An appraisal in 2006 reported:

“Although it was not the complete boxoffice

failure that today everyone believes

... it was initially a major disappointment

and confirmed, at least to the studios,

that Capra was no longer capable of

turning out the populist features that

made his films the must-see, moneymaking

events they once were.”

It’s a Wonderful Life is now considered

one of the greatest films of all time.

It was nominated for five Academy

Awards, including Best Picture, and has

been recognized by the American Film

Institute as one of the 100 best American

films ever made,[4] as number 11 on

its initial 1998 greatest movie list, as

number 20 on its revised 2007 greatest

movie list, and as number one on its list

of the most inspirational American films

of all time. Capra revealed that it was

his personal favorite among the films he

directed and that he screened it for his

family every Christmas season.

Career con artist Roy Courtnay

(McKellen) can hardly believe his luck

when he meets well-to-do widow Betty

McLeish (Mirren) online. As Betty

opens her home and life to him, Roy is

surprised to find himself caring about

her, turning what should be a cut-anddry

swindle into the most treacherous

tightrope walk of his life.

“The Good Liar” also stars Russell

Tovey (TV’s “Quantico”) and Jim

Carter (TV’s “Downton Abbey”).

Greg Yolen also served as producer,
