Queen and Country [Feature Film]



An Englishman who grew up in London during World War II joins the military to fight in the Korean War. Following on from John Boorman’s Oscar nominated Hope and GloryQUEEN AND COUNTRY picks up the story nearly a decade later as Bill begins basic training in the early Fifties, during the Korean War. A superb ensemble cast limns a wonderfully funny and often moving depiction of a still-recovering postwar England.

Darkwood's Leanne Natalie Jones worked as a Production Assistant on the film, which went on to premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
