About the movie

image7.4/10 image 59/100

The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy, where the romance is between the young people of the 60s, and pop music. It's about a band of DJs that captivate Britain, playing the music that defines a generation and standing up to a government that wanted control of popular culture via the British Broadcasting Corporation. Loosely based on the events in Britain in the 60's when the Labour government of Harold Wilson, wanted to bring the pirate radio stations under control, enough to see the passage of the Marine Broadcasting Offences Act on 15 August 1967. Also known as "Pirate Radio".

A lovely, feel good film loosely based on true events, incredible cast and of course, being a film about pirate radio has a great soundtrack. I love the completeness it gives you of life in the 60s with its cut aways to all the radio listeners. ☮️✌️🎶

Man I love Richard Curtis. Excellent movie that we laughed, sang and shed a tear to. An excellent selection of faces you all know, along with great character development that makes them all endearing.
