Waiting for Dublin

It is 1952. Bill Rowan is eighteen years old, dreaming his life away at the family's riverside home, waiting to be called up for two years' conscription in the British Army. His idyll is shattered by the harsh realities of boot camp. He meets Percy, an amoral prankster; they are rivals and antagonists, but they gradually forge a deep friendship in the claustrophic environment of a closed, prison-like training camp. The pressure is briefly relieved by excursions into the outside world, where they both fall in love. Finally, Bill is confronted with the shattered lives of wounded boys returning from Korea. 

Written and directed by John Boorman and starring Caleb Landry Jones, Callum Turner, David Thewlis, Pat Shortt, Brian F O'Byrne, Tamsin Egerton, Richard E Grant and Sinead Cusack, 'Queen and Country' will be released in 2014.
