The film club presents "The Boat that Rocked"

The film club presents a film in English once a month on a Saturday afternoon.

This showing will be of The Boat that Rocked (known as Pirate Radio in North America).  This movie is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the 1960s and pop music. It’s about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that wanted classical music, and nothing else, on the airwaves. The Count (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin (Bill Nighy), the boss of Radio Rock – a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that’s populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs; Gavin (Rhys Ifans), the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position; Dave (Nick Frost), an ironic, intelligent, and cruelly funny co-broadcaster; and a fearsome British government official out for blood against the drug takers and lawbreakers of a once-great nation.

Watch the trailer here.

The film will be followed by a discussion in English. This activity is free and open to all library members.
