Son Of Rambow

I went to see this film by Garth Jannings last night. It’s a British/French comedy set in early 80s England about the unlikely alliance of two ostensibly very different schoolboys who make a film short based on Rambo.It’s quirky, definitely funny, and moving too with moments of real pathos. The movie strapline is ‘Make believe. Not war’. Themes include growing-up,bereavement, and the way children have a whole world of their own which is far more real and important than home or school.
