King of rom-coms Richard Curtis is back with another smash hit. The Boat That Rocked, is out now, with an all star cast from Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy to Rhys Ifans and Nick Frost. Set in the swinging sixties when the BBC banned all rock and roll, the film tells the tale of one pirate radio station that rocked everyone. Operating from a boat somewhere in the English channel the DJ’s are under constant threat from Minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh), who’s keen to make these pirates walk the plank. It’s worth seeing for the fantastic music and costumes alone.
