The Opening Film: Jackboots on Whitehall

We are proud to present 'Jackboots on Whitehall' at the Opening Night of our 18th annual Raindance Film Festival.

Jackboots on WhitehallIn what is one of the most refreshingly original UK indie films of the year, this epic adventure of stop-motion animation gives a hilarious version of the Second World War.  It follows a band of heroic villagers led by Chris (Ewan McGregor), and Daisy (Rosamund Pike) as they rescue Churchill (Timothy Spall) and fight against the Nazi invasion of England to defeat Hitler (Richard E. Grant).
