Hope and Glory 04/24/18
Where Were You in ’42? If you were little Johnnie Boorman in 1940, you might have been squatting in dank bomb shelter with your Mum and sisters, waiting out an air raid alert. Writer-director Boorman’s personal memory of what for some kids was a glorious time when working-class Brits endured adverse conditions: it’s warm & fuzzy affectionate and frequently hilarious, with a keen eye toward slightly bawdy family humor. Sarah Miles and Ian Bannen star. On Blu-ray from Olive Films.
