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.

I have seen the trailer for this movie and love the director, so it's on my must see list.

I enjoy reading your blog and being inspired and I have awarded you a Kreativ Blog Award!

Thea said...

Wow! I've never had a blog award before. I'm quite flattered that you think me worthy. You may have to wait a week before I answer the questions though... just got back from setting up for the Stitches and Craft show - need rest!
