Son of Rambow: an unlikely friendship between two boys

Unread postby musicmonkey » Sun Jan 25, 2009 4:56 am

I highly recommend this beautiful film about friendship. It was a smash at Sundance. The soundtrack is great too full of new wave classics.

A long English summer in the early 80's and two boys are about to form an unlikely friendship. Will Proudfoot has been brought up in a strictly religious household, forbidden to watch TV or listen to music. But after Lee Carter, the school trouble-maker, blows Will's mind with a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood, Will's easily persuaded to act in Lee's home-made movie sequel. Armed only with a camera - "borrowed" from Lee's brother -- and their limitless imagination, the pair plot stunt after stunt, dodging teachers and family all the way, as they do whatever it takes to finish their masterpiece in time to enter it in the national Screen Test competition.
