The long-awaited sequel to writer/director John Boorman’s 1987 multi-Oscar-nominated Hope And Glory picks up the story nearly a decade later.
It’s the early 1950s, and Bill Rohan (Boorman’s alter-ego, played by Callum Turner) is set for National Service. At army boot camp he befriends trouble-maker Percy (Landy Jones), battles his Sergeant Major (David Thewlis) and discovers romance.
A charming bittersweet comedy/drama with superb ensemble cast.
