Making the Grades

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Note: Pirate Radio was previously titled The Boat That Rocked.

Synopsis:

The 1960s mantra “Drugs, sex and rock-and-roll” sets sail aboard a floating radio station strategically positioned in international waters, but close enough to be heard on England’s shores. Captained by a DJ known as “The Count” (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the illegally broadcasted radio waves capture both the rebellious heart of UK youth and the attention of the stern and controlling British Government.

Teaching ideas and topics to discuss about Pirate Radio.

A real radio ship did illegally broadcasted off the coast of Britain during the 1960, but their programming was more benign and their purpose more commercial. Click here to learn more about Radio Caroline.
