Swing Kids

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108265

1993 film with Robert Sean Leonard, Christian Bale, Frank Whaley, Kenneth Branagh, Barbara Hershey, and Noah Wyle (yes, Dr Carter from ER!).


An uneven, if interesting story about German kids who like swing music in Nazi Germany, and the conflict and perils of being a "rebel" during those times. Strong performances from the cast, but occasionally cheesy dialogue weakens the film overall.

Admittedly, I watched this movie because it has RSL and Christian Bale in it (I love RSL in House MD, and Christian Bale is a favourite actor of mine), but was pleasantly surprised by this film. It's a bit rough around the edges, but worth checking out if you are a fan of either actor.
