Hope and Glory, John Boorman’s (Deliverance) autobiographical film is a nostalgic and gently comic remembrance of England during the turbulent Blitz as seen through the eyes of 10-year-old Billy Rohan (Sebastian Rice-Edwards). While the beauty of the aircrafts and tanks holds endless wonders for the young boy, others know all too well the destruction they bring.

Navigating difficult times are mother Grace (Sarah Miles, Academy Award® nominee for Best Actress – Ryan’s Daughter, 1971), who finds herself head of the household when her husband is drafted; Billy’s sister, Dawn (Sammi Davis, Mona Lisa), whose romance and pregnancy with the dashing Canadian airman Corporal Carrey (Jean-Marc Barr, The Big Blue) is yet another challenge for the stoic Grace; and George (Ian Bannen, Gandhi), Billy’s curmudgeonly grandfather whose idyllic country home will open Billy’s eyes to a whole new world.

Written, directed and produced by Academy Award® nominee John Boorman (Director and Best Picture – Deliverance, 1973; Director, Screenplay and Best Picture – Hope and Glory, 1988), Hope and Glory is photographed by Academy Award® winner Philippe Rousselot (A River Runs Through It – 1993), costumed by two-time Academy Award® nominee Shirley Russell (Agatha – 1980, Reds – 1982) with production design by two-time Academy Award® nominee Anthony Pratt (Hope and Glory – 1988 shared with Joanne Woollard, Phantom of the Opera – 2005 shared with Celia Bobak).
