Director John Boorman
John Boorman’s latest film QUEEN AND COUNTRY, a sequel to his Oscar-nominated film “Hope and Glory”, was chosen for the prestigious Directors’ Fortnight selection at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Set in 1952, QUEEN AND COUNTRY stars Caleb Landry Jones as an 18-year-old British man who joins the National Service and meets an amoral prankster who becomes his friend. They are assigned as instructors in a training camp while others are shipped out to fight in the Korean War. The film also stars Pat Short, Sinead Cusack, Callum Turner, David Thewlis and Richard E. Grant. The film is set 10 years after “Hope and Glory” and centres on the same characters.
