Hope and Glory

Synopsis: Director John Boorman drew from his own childhood experiences for this touching coming-of-age tale about a boy growing up in and around London during World War II. For young Billy Rowan (Sebastian Rice Edwards), the nightly bombings provide a frightening show, but they include opportunities to rummage through the rubble with friends in the mornings. As Billy plays, his family struggles to remain intact as they suffer through the anguish and losses of wartime.

GRACE:

Dawn, darling. They've started a

war again.

GRACE says it as though announcing that dinner is served,

but her voice is torn by a sob as she holds DAWN in her

arms.

GRACE:

(Whispering and sobbing)

We mustn't frighten the little

ones.

DAWN is appalled by her mother's display of sentiment. She

wrenches free.

DAWN:

I don't care! I want my

stockings!

CLIVE get's up, blazing. He seizes DAWN and shakes her.

CLIVE:

Stockings? War! Don't you

understand! War!

DAWN:

I don't care!

CLIVE:

War! War!

GRACE inserts herself between them.

GRACE:

Clive. Don't. Dawn, please.

EXT. ROHAN HOUSE - GARDEN - DAY

BILL calls out from the garden. He is jumping up and down,

pointing at the sky.

BILL:

German planes! German planes!

They run out. GRACE sweeps little SUE into her arms, buring

her face in her bosom and rushing back into the shelter of

the house. DAWN and CLIVE scan the sky for planes, There

are none.

BILL:

I did see them. I did.
