Cinematique Presents "Queen and Country"

May 20, 2015

Queen and Country is the hilarious follow up to Hope and Glory, John Boorman's Academy Award magnet from 1987 which featured 9-year-old Bill who rejoiced at the destruction of his school by an errant Luftwaffe bomb. Queen and Country picks up almost a decade later when Bill (Callum Turner) is beginning basic training at the outbreak of the Korean War. Although Bill never sets foot in Korea, he is in a constant battle of wits with fellow army mate Percy (Caleb Landry Jones) and Sgt. Major Bradley (David Thewlis). Don't miss the chance to revisit the warmth and wisdom of these past glories. (Unrated, 1 hr 55 min)

"It has taken John Boorman almost three decades to make the sequel to his much-cherished Hope and Glory, but Queen and Country turns out to be well worth the wait." - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"A deeply personal memoir, so well written and carefully observed that it draws the viewer into the ambience of postwar England with a persuasive power that makes you feel you're part of the same experience." - Rex Reed, New York Observer
