Whoops! It WAS renamed Pirate Radio here! And the critics hated it at its original 3 hr running length. But it's been cut to 2 hrs and I can't wait to see the outtakes. An ensemble gem with a few suspensions-of-belief needed, but worth it. Totally unbelievable ending and I didn't care!! Worth it for Philip Seymour Hoffman as the bearded DJ, Kenneth Branagh as a British bureaucratic fanatic, the music, and the character known as Thikc (sic) Kevin!!!!
Caught The Boat that Rocked in a hotel room the other night....and it is FANTASTIC!!!! Terrible title - should've been called Pirate Radio - but a great story, great cast, GREAT music, and a feel-good ending...but a riot all along the way. Do NOT miss it; on dvd I'm sure.
Great news on the local book scene from Shelf Awareness; Perry is one of the smart, kind, good guys:

"Because of my involvement with the library, I know Montauk wants and needs a bookshop." esides general, children's, diet, gardening and cooking titles, the store has rotating displays of local artists' work and readings.
