The Boat That Rocked

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Kenneth Branagh star in this movie coming out Aug. 28 about the UK offshore pirate radio operators. From the film's web site:
Celebrated filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually) brings audiences his most personal comedy to date. Writing and directing the story of a band of rogue deejays who captivated British radio listeners in the ’60s, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz, Curtis welcomes us aboard "The Boat That Rocked."

Leading the cast of the new film are Academy Award® winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as Radio Rock’s infamous deejay The Count; Bill Nighy as the station’s owner (and ship’s captain), Quentin; Rhys Ifans as mystic deejay royalty Gavin; Nick Frost as the amorous, sarcastic disc jockey Dave; and Kenneth Branagh as the man out to shut down Radio Rock, Minister Dormandy.
