Day 129

Movie: Pirate Radio {aka The Boat that Rocked}
Starring: Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Music,
Year: 2009
Format: Shaw Video On Demand

Plot: In 1966 a mix match of music djs broadcast rock music 24/7 from a docked boat in the U.K.  They spend a year trying not to get shut down, while dealing with two new crew members one of which is the long lost son of another crew member.

Even though this is listed as a fictional story, it is also loosely based on events that happened in the 1960's.
The version I saw was the edited version, which is suppose to be nearly a half hour shorter. Which might explain why there were characters introduced once in the film and never explained or seen again.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Progress can not be stopped, it might be stalled once and awhile but never stopped.  Life takes you were you need to be, not always how your want it to.
