It's 1965 and rock music is shaking up the world but not in New Zealand. Richard Davis a 23 year old journalist is determined to break the Government's monopoly on broadcasting and bring rock n' roll to a younger generation, and at the same time hold onto the woman he loves. Based on a true story. Written by
Loved this NZ made movie, didn't have any expectations, so was pleasantly surprised by this gem. It had a bit of everything for me, adventure, humor, romance, and a good story line.
Loved Matt Whelan! Good to see a mostly New Zealand cast.
I can see why this film is winning International Film Awards. Would be nice if it got the same recognition in New Zealand. The movie left me feeling good after wards and made me appreciate that we can now listen to any music station we wish to tune in to, thanks to the determination of a few very brave Radio Pirates. This movie definitely has a very New Zealand flavor which is very refreshing to see.
