Son of Rambow
Source: Catholic News Service
Rollicking but also touching chronicle, set in 1980s Britain, of the unlikely friendship between a reserved schoolboy (Bill Milner), who's being raised by his puritanically religious widowed mother (Jessica Stevenson), and a rambunctious fellow student (Will Poulter) who's been left in the care of his dictatorial older brother (Ed Westwick), as they collaborate on a frenetic sequel to one of Sylvester Stallone's "Rambo" movies with the aid of a charismatically cool French exchange student (Jules Sitruk). Writer-director Garth Jennings' warmly humorous, semi-autobiographical film portrays the Amish-like sect as stifling enough to justify its main character's conflicted resistance, but ends by affirming faith as well as friendship. Shoplifting, underage smoking, a painful accident, occasional crude and profane and some crass language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
