New York, NY Legendary, internationally-renowned Academy Award® nominated director John Boorman (Deliverance) concludes a career spanning more than 50 years with his final film, Queen and Country, available now on Digital HD, and on DVD on September 8, 2015. This long awaited sequel to the five-time Academy Award® nominated Hope and Glory has been hailed as “riveting” and “a privilege” by the San Francisco Chronicle, and is a fitting end to the career of a masterful director.

Based on Boorman’s early adult years, this moving and funny film follows Bill Rohan−a child of the Blitz− as he comes of age while the country is drawn into the Korean War. At boot camp, Bill and his new buddies master the art of poking fun at petty tyrants and hunger for weekend leave with local beauties.

Savor this poignant and powerful mix of laughter, longing, and the launch of adulthood in a time of war, starring Callum Turner (The Borgias, Ripper Street), Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class, No Country for Old Men), David Thewlis (Harry Potter series, War Horse, Naked), Tamsin Egerton (Silent Witness), and the great Richard E. Grant (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, Withnail and I).

Queen and Country was produced by Merlin Films by John Boorman and Kieran Corrigan, and co-produced by Jean Labadie and Vlad Paunescu.  The film was distributed in North America by BBC Worldwide North America, and premiered in theaters across the U.S. and Canada on February 18, 2015.
