SON OF RAMBOW
Written and Directed by Garth Jennings
Starring: Will Poulter, Bill Milner, Jules Sitruk, Charlie Thrift, Jessica Stevenson
Rated PG-13 • RT 95 minute
A nostalgic trip back to the 1980s, Son of Rambow is an inventive valentine to an era where young minds had access to technology that allowed them to create their own stories while paying homage to their larger-than-life heroes from the movies that inspired them.
Will, who isn't allowed to watch TV or go to the movies, expresses himself through his drawings and illustrations until he finds himself caught up in the extraordinary world of Lee Carter, the school terror and crafter of bizarre home movies.
Carter exposes Will to a pirated copy of the first Rambo film, First Blood, which blows his mind wide open. Against his family's orders, his imaginative little brain begins to flower in the world of filmmaking. Will and Lee become popular at school through their films, but when a French exchange student, Didier Revol, arrives on the scene, their unique friendship and precious film are pushed to the breaking point.
