This resource is outstanding. It is very thorough in all respects: background, textual reading, exam practice and background research. I had only 4 texts to choose from and I chose the text for study based on the quality of this resource material.

An excellent resource... Enhances learning in many different ways. Although it is very focused towards the A Level exam, I also feel that it allows students to appreciate the work in an enjoyable way, and to share their thoughts and opinions on the film.
