Music Week - Part 2 (Screening 27th February)

The Boat That Rocked
Sunday 27th February 2011
Weber, K-huset, 19:00


In the mid 1960s in Britain, the BBC plays little pop music. To the ire of conservative elements of the UK government, a pirate radio station operates on a ship off the coast, capturing half the English audience. Fatherless young Carl, thrown out of school for smoking, is remanded by his elegant mother to the ship, where colorful men - and a lesbian - run the station. Every two weeks women come on board; he falls for the station manager's niece. There's a feud for DJ primacy between an expat Yank and an English god; the midnight DJ says little, the early A.M. jock rarely appears, and back on shore, a government minister is implacable. Can he sink the ship and silence rock and roll?
