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.
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.
