Get On Board
I wasn't productive at all today but that's okay as I really needed to recharge my batteries after an exhausting week. So hubby and I went to the cinema this afternoon. Now, I don't usually blog about movies but I felt that I had to share this gem with you. 'The Boat That Rocked' is one of the BEST movies I have ever seen.
In the late 1960s, American radio stations blasted rock and roll 24 hours a day but in the UK, only the BBC could legally broadcast music and played less than 2 hours of rock and roll every week. The only way 25 million people could hear their music was to tune in to a pirate station on a boat anchored outside British waters.
Hosted by a colourful band of disc-jockeys, the boat soon gains an audience of millions and angers the government in the process who tries to shut them down.
If you want to see a clever feel-good British comedy, I recommend this one.
