Director: Garth Jennings
“If you only see one Rambo movie this year, make sure it's this one.” - Empire
Trapped in 80s English suburbia, 11-year-old Will lives with his widowed mother, a devoted member of the Plymouth Brethren who stifles his imagination by forbidding television, popular music and film, restricting his entertainment solely to religious texts. Quiet and solitary, Will finds an unlikely partner in Lee, the school bully, who exposes him to an illicit screening of Rambo: First Blood.
Lee enlists Will in his own short film, a production that spirals hilariously out of control as it gets hijacked by a French exchange student with dreams of becoming an actor.
A box-office smash in the UK, Son of Rambow is the follow up to director Garth Jennings's 2005 debut, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
