The Rocket is the LIFF27 Audience Favourite winner from last November The Rocket, which is showing as part of the LYFF (Leeds Young Film Festival).
This is a kid's film, much as We Are The Best! which is also showing as part of LYFF and was very popular too in LIFF27 (hope you are following this!)
Anyway bear in mind that I really liked this film when I saw it, but also that I knew nothing about it beforehand and didn't have any major expectations. I would be very surprised if it doesn't stand up to a second viewing, the little girl actress seen above second to right is amazing considering she only looks about 3 yrs old.. So my advice is to just show up, knowing only that it involves some Asians on a scooter and is called The Rocket. That's the path to full enjoyment, trust me on this one!!
I can't make it now, as we've salvaged our trip to Berlin, despite the pilot strike there, but rest assured, between Vivek & Sue you are in *very* safe hands. Frankie.
