Grade schoolers Melody (Tracy Hyde) and Daniel (Mark Lester) are completely earnest in their desire to wed one another. Unfortunately, no one seems to understand the ardor of their loving bond. Their parents and teachers find the marriage proposition ridiculous, and Daniel’s closest pal, Ornshaw (Jack Wild), doesn’t want to lose his buddy to a girl. However, the mischievous Ornshaw eventually warms to the idea, and helps Daniel and Melody escape the cruel clutches of the adults. This film is a beautiful document of late ‘60 London as seen through the eyes of rowdy little school kids. Melody marked the first feature film outing for British filmmaking legends, Alan Parker and David Puttnam.
