Amélie is an extraordinary young woman. Her life looks quiet and calm on the outside, and she doesn't make a lot of impact on the world, but her inner life is loud and vibrant. She secretly makes tiny acts of kindness, things that bring happiness and joy to the people around her. But when the chance to encounter real love of her own arrives, Amélie realises that if she wants to be contented and happy, she will need to risk everything and actually admit, out loud, what’s in her heart.
Our times are tough for dreamers. Sometimes it feels like the whole world is going crazy. But against a backdrop of awful politicians, endless recessions, runaway climate change and mass unkindness, the character of Amélie is someone to believe in. You'll leave the venue uplifted, cheered, believing anything is possible and enjoying the renewed knowledge that kindness really does makes the world go round. If you feel strongly enough about the experience to create a few small, secret acts of kindness of your own, even senseless acts of beauty if you wish, you won't be alone. It's an inspiration.
