Synopsis


Winter 1982.


Two boys are about to form an unlikely friendship.


Will Proudfoot is a member of the Plymouth Brethren, forbidden from watching TV or films.


Lee Carter is the wild child, school trouble-maker.


When Lee blows Will's mind with a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood, this unlikely pair collaborate on a homemade sequel.


Their movie changes the lives of all around them.


Will's recently-widowed mum, Sarah, begins to question her faith as family friend Joshua confesses his love for her.


Lee's brother Barry fights for the love of his girlfriend Tina, who must choose between Barry, university or the French exchange sexpot, Didier.


Based on the cult hit film, Son of Rambow is a heart-warming and hilarious story about two boys with a big video camera and even bigger ambitions.


Set to an original 80s pop soundtrack from Miranda Cooper, one of the UK's most successful pop writers, who has spent more years on the UK chart than any other female songwriter in history.
