Hope and Glory


1 hour, 43 minutes

This film is a personal, partly autobiographical film largely based on John Boorman’s own family’s experiences during World War Two. Boorman (born in 1933) was already an experienced director when he made Hope and Glory, having made Point Blank (1967), Deliverance (1972), Zardoz (1974), Excalibur (1981) and The Emerald Forest (1985). Hope and Glory was nominated for several Academy Awards (or Oscars): Best Director, Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Art Direction, and Best Cinematography. In an interview John Boorman said about the film: “It’s about the war as I remember it as a child: a time of tremendous excitement and enjoyment…”
