Director Garth Jennings presents a nostalgic look back at the 1980s with Son of Rambow. This is his inventive valentine to an era where, for the first time in history, young minds had access to technology that would allow them to create their own stories while paying homage to their larger-than-life heroes from the movies that inspired them. In the film, young Will finds a new kind of popularity when he shoots his own version of Rambo: First Blood Part II with his friend, and schoolyard terror, Lee. We recently caught up with Jennings and his producer Nick Goldsmith for a chat about this unique and highly personal project. To watch our exclusive video interview, click on the clip below:

Son of Rambow opens this Friday, May 2nd, in selected theaters.
