What I watched:
… or if you’re American, “Pirate Radio”.
What I thought: I really enjoyed this movie. I’m a huge Richard Curtis fan, I love his style of writing so I was relatively sure I’d like the movie, despite it being not a very big commercial success. Sure, it’s long and a little bit muddled but darn it, I watched it with a big smile on my face the whole way through. And I even cried at the end. And then laughed again.
It’s jam packed with fantastic music and some even better actors. All those funny guys that you recognise from English movies, the ones whose face you know but might not know their name? They’re all in it. Oh and my beloved Kenneth Branagh.
Recommended? Yes. Fun movie about silly people on a boat. With bonus good music.
