Loosely inspired by a true story. The year is 1966 and the BBC won’t play rock’n roll, the government refuses. How do you fix that? Sail a ship into international waters, drop anchor and broadcast! What do you get when you mix together rebellion, great music, teenage angst & British humour? You get a whole lot of laughs.

The Boat That Rocked is a movie starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, and Nick Frost. A band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that wanted classical music, and nothing else, on the airwaves.
