Summer of Rockets (2019)
for me 10/10
Are you after a typical spy drama, a Harry Palmer or 007? Well if so this isn't for you. But if you want an unusual plot with heaps of period settings and a family centric dynamic that's intertwined with a spy plot then its worth watching.
Made in 2018, which turned out to be the hottest ever summer in England, it was shot in some of the most grand locations including outside shots at Buckingham palace. Sets, costumes, cinematography, music and acting is superbly lush.
The story features an inventor with a Russian background; all based on the true story of the writers family and father Alexander Poliakoff OBE.
And what is it all about? well I'd say that's a secret! Or more accurately how many secrets, all interlinked, impact on each other with twists and turns along the way.
