Series: John Boorman: Conjurer of Cinema
Boorman’s semi-autobiographical Hope and Glory is a cinematic love letter to a special family, an extraordinary time, and a child’s adventure while the world was at war. Billy Rohan’s childhood is filled with danger and discovery in London during the Blitz. In hopes of a safer life, Grace Rohan moves her children to the countryside when her husband goes to battle. This remarkable film is balanced by humor, charm, and sobering insights into the toll that wartime can take on children, especially those as sensitive as Billy. Director John Boorman is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)
