PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
On V.E. Day in 1945, as peace extends across Europe, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are allowed out to join the celebrations. It is a night full of excitement, danger and the first flutters of romance.
In this film, Roger Allam plays a bootlegger that helped Princess Margaret. In The Queen (2006), he played Robin Janvrin, who was the assistant to Princess Margaret's sister, Queen Elizabeth.
What's a knocking shop?
When the Princess and Jack arrive at the air field, we see them driving through a very run down clearly abandoned site, there is paint flaking from buildings and greenery growing from guttering and roadways, suggesting they haven't been used for a long time. While you might expect the site to look 'war torn', you wouldn't expect it to look, disused as it would now.
The opening credits play over clips of stock-footage from the time-period, including a short clip of Winston Churchill giving a speech.
