Directed and written by John Boorman, Hope and Glory is loosely based on his childhood in war torn England in the 40's. But rather than be a standard war movie, this is a comedy based around a nine year old's experience in such circumstances. Rather than grasping the reality of what is going on around him, Bill (Rice-Edwards) sees the war as an adventure and spends much of his time playing war with his friends. Ian Bannen makes a brilliant showing as the boy's grizzled, yet witty grandfather.
