This is a charming coming-of-age movie of a naive teenageboy from a very religious one parent home where TV is not allowed, making a “Son of Rambow” movie with a “friend” that he meets at his secular high school. I did not think it was entirely fair to the Plymouth Brethern. The last time I visited a Plymouth Brethern Church was about 15 years ago in Wichita KS. I stayed up late into the evening discussing head coverings for women and how beautiful and biblical that was. The church service was very unique in that almost every man in the church took turns offering a mini-sermon while all the women listened quietly. The house we stayed at had a big piano in the living room rather than a big TV set.
“Son of Rambow” is showing at independent arts theaters.
