Review
It's the 1930s; on the remote Island of Scarp, in the Outer Hebrides, the locals are about to be dragged, with wry bemusement, into the cutting edge of 20th Century technology when two German scientists, in order to reduce the islanders isolation, are sent to design and build a rocket capable of delivering the post!!! At first a gentle and often witty tale of cultural differences and gradually eroded suspicion, The Rocket Post unfolds into a tender and ultimately poignant love story, complemented by some fine understated performances and the fact that it all looks quite breathtakingly beautiful.
