Hope and Glory
(1987)

Country: UK

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Writer Boorman's memories of his bizarre wartime childhood are the basis for this story of an ordinary family living in war-torn England. A semiautobiographical about a nine year old boy as he grows up in London during the blitz of World War 2. For a young boy, this time in history was more of an adventure, a total upheaval of order, restrictions and discipline. The liberating effect of the war on the women left behind. And the joy when Hitler blows up your school.

Pretty good. If you liked it, try the book Children of the Blitz, a collection of wartime reminiscences edited by distinguished children's author Robert Westall.

Interesting film about the freedom that can emerge in the chaos of war. Worth a watch especially for the scenes of Billy in the boat!

Sebastian Rice-Edwards is one of the best-looking child actors in British cinema without a doubt.
