Queen & Country Screens in Cannes
John Boorman's Queen & Country screens as part of the prestigous Directors' Fortnight sidebar at the Cannes Film Festival this week.
The film is
the sequel to 1987 classic 'Hope and Glory' which was loosely based on the director's own childhood during World War II. Queen & Country jumps forward
to the early 1950's as Bill and Percy are inlisted to the army with the treath of being shipped out to the Korean War.
The film was shot on in Shepperton Studios and in Romania. It then returned to Ireland for Picture and Sound Post at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound.
