30 Days of Film (17): Favorite Drama Film

The Boat That Rocked/Pirate Radio. Another British film. Another amazing film too. The film follows a group of radio DJ's that are broadcasting classic rock out of a cargo ship in the North Sea.

But the British government thinks that rock and roll is corrupting society, so it starts putting limitations on radio broadcasts, until eventually, they deem the rock and roll played on the radio illegal. Good times are had of course, but the drama comes in the form of the different personalities of the DJ's.

With Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy and Nick Frost in the cast, I highly recommend it.
