Swing Kids review this is a must have movie if you love the big band sound. the acting is wonderful, as it gets into pre world war two era and and how the civilians really felt about what was happening to their country.

Swing Kids DVD for sale I first viewed this film on VHS, and found it very moving. Catergorized as a drama this film for me was one of "freedom of expression", in an era when such an act cost many their lives.

Swing Kids DVD Features
In 1939, Nazi Germany declares war on freedom and demands conformity from its youth. But a group calling themselves Swing Kids rebel with their "swing music" from America. When two of them dare to stand up against the powerful forces around them -- traditions will be broken and loyalties must be crossed! Robert Sean Leonard (DEAD POETS SOCIETY) and Christian Bale (SHAFT, AMERICAN PSYCHO) deliver gripping performances as two friends who must choose between their individual freedom or loyalty to the murderous Third Reich. Also featuring screen favorite Barbara Hershey (BEACHES, TIN MEN), SWING KIDS is an inspirational and powerful story about friendship -- and finding the courage to fight for what you believe in!
