After accidentally shrinking his teacher, 11-year-old Felix scrambles to find a way to bring her back to full size in this highly entertaining comedy.
It’s the first day at a new school, and Felix is nervous. He needs to succeed or his dreams of one day being a pilot will disappear into thin air. Things get off to a rocky start when he finds out his teacher is the universally disliked school principal, Dr. Schmitt-Gössenwein, who isn’t sure Felix is the right fit for the school.
On a dare, Felix agrees to break into a locked room in the school that is strictly off-limits. Dr. Schmitt-Gössenwein catches Felix and threatens to expel him. Suddenly, something strange happens: Felix’s wish for his teacher to be little comes true, and she magically shrinks until she’s only six inches tall!
The problem of having a doll-sized teacher is compounded when Felix finds out the school may be closed due to low enrollment. With the help of his new friend, Ella, can Felix find a way both to save the school and to restore his teacher to her full height?
HOW WE HANDLE SUBTITLES
To enhance our young viewer’s appreciation of foreign-language films, we have readers red the subtitles aloud. We play the readings through individual headsets.[/span9][/columns]
