Queen & Country at Sag Harbor Cinema

March 6, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - March 12, 2015 @ 6:00 pm

Queen & Country is the hilarious follow-up to John Boorman’s HOPE AND GLORY (1987 nominated for 5 Academy Awards), when 9-year-old Bill Rohan rejoices in the destruction of his school by an errant Luftwaffe bomb.

QUEEN AND COUNTRY picks up the story nearly a decade later as Bill (Boorman’s alter-ego), played by a charming Callum Turner, begins basic training in the early 1950s, during the Korean War. Bill is joined by a trouble-making army mate, Percy (Caleb Landry Jones).

They never get near Korea, but engage in a constant battle of wits with the Catch-22-worthy, Sgt. Major Bradley — the brilliant David Thewlis. Richard E. Grant is their superior, the veddy, veddy, infinitely put-upon, aptly-named Major Cross. A superb ensemble cast limns a wonderfully funny and often moving depiction of a still-recovering postwar England.

Showtimes are 6 p.m. March 6, 8 p.m. March 7 & 8 and 6 p.m. March 9 & 12. The theater is closed Tuesdays & Wednesdays for the winter season.
