Richard Curtis ("Love, Actually") delves into the world of 60's pirate radio in this coming-of-age comedy. Amidst a cast of crazies played by the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy, disillusioned teen Carl is about to experience the rebellious spirit of rock 'n' roll, Radio Rock-style!
On air. Off shore. Out of control.
Recently expelled from school, Carl (Tom Sturridge) is sent by his mother to find some direction in life by visiting his godfather, Quentin (Bill Nighy, Underworld). However, Quentin is the boss of Radio Rock, a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea, populated by an eclectic crew of rock 'n' roll DJs.
They are led by The Count (Oscar Award-winning Philip Seymour Hoffman, Capote) - big, brash, American, god of the airwaves, and totally in love with the music. He's faithfully backed up by his co-broadcasters Dave (Nick Frost, Hot Fuzz) - ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny; Simon (Chris O'Dowd, TV's The IT Crowd) - super-nice and searching for true love; Midnight Mark (Tom Wisdom) - enigmatic, handsome and man of few words; Wee Small Hours Bob - the late night DJ, whose hobbies are folk music and drugs; Thick Kevin (Tom Brooke) - possessor of the smallest intelligence known to mankind; On-The-Hour John (Will Adamsdale) - the newsreader; and Angus 'The Nut' Nutsford (Rhys Darby, of TV's The Flight Of The Conchords) - possibly the most annoying man in Britain.
Life on the North Sea is eventful. Simon finds the woman of his dreams and is married on the boat... only to be left by his bride the next day. Gavin (Rhys Ifans, Notting Hill) returns from his drug tour of America to his rightful position as the greatest DJ in Britain, clashing with The Count. Meanwhile, Carl discovers the opposite sex and who his real father is, whilst government minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh, Wallander) is out for the blood of these rebellious lawbreakers.
What results is a literal storm on the high seas. With Radio Rock in peril, it's devoted fans rally together and stage an epic Dunkirk-style hundred boat rescue to save their DJ heroes. Some things may come to an end, but rock 'n' roll never dies.
