Synopsis:
A long English summer in the early '80s and two boys are about to form an unlikely friendship. Will Proudfoot has been brought up in a strictly religious household, forbidden to watch TV or listen to music. But after Lee Carter, the school trouble-maker, blows Will's mind with a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood, Will's easily persuaded to act in Lee's home made movie sequel. Armed only with a camera "borrowed" from Lee's brother and their limitless imagination, the pair plot stunt after stunt, dodging teachers and family all the way, as they do whatever it takes to finish their masterpiece in time to enter it in the Screen Test competition.

Delightful flashback - Son of Rambow review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/09/2008

A wonderful trip back to the 80's awaits anyone who picks up Son of Rambow. The recreation of the Vietnam classic plays an important part in proceedings, but Jennings ensures there's plenty more going on. So those dreading a high bodycount matched with tons of violence will be pleased by their ommission.

Both of the young leads while apparently inexperienced are terrific. You'll spend plenty of time remembering your own youth and surroundings as this story unfolds. It is charming, funny and touching, clearly one of the best UK films of recent times.
