John Boorman is now pretty much forgotten but I think it is a pretty good director with an impressive career spreading from the 60's until the 2000's.

Bill Rohan, a young boy living on the outskirts of London experiences the exhilaration of World War II, as seen through the eyes of director John Boorman, who also wrote and produced the autobiographical film. During this period, Bill learns about sex, death, love, hypocrisy, and the faults of adults as he prowls the ruins of bombed houses on Rosehill Avenue. His childlike father is off chasing patriotic dreams of glory from behind a military clerk's typewriter; his teenage sister runs wild; his mother can't cope; and everything in the end will eventually turn out all right.

" Date: 5/1/2019 Viewed: In Class First Viewing Note: I didn't know much about this movie to be honest and I end up really liking it a lot. I thought the acting was great and the story was very good. I really like all of the characters and I care about them a lot more than I thought I would. I can see why this movie is a major classic in British cinema. I highly recommend this movie. "
