From acclaimed director John Boorman, comes a tale of hope and courage set amongst the rubble strewn streets of bomb ravaged London during the Second World War.
Seen through the eyes of a young boy, the 'fireworks' provided by the Blitz every night are as exciting as they are terrifying. His family do not see things in quite the same way and as the bombs continue to drop, their will to survive brings them closer together. The nightly raids do not provide the only drama, however, as his sister falls for a Canadian airman and finding her life turned upside down, soon discovers how valuable the bonds of family can become.
'Hope and Glory' paints a picture of a world riven by conflict and yet united in resistance to the creeping tide of war that seems to be marching ever closer. Winning numerous awards worldwide and nominated for both BAFTAs and Academy Awards this film is truly a modern classic
