American Swing music in Nazi Germany!
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! Kenneth Branagh makes a particularly effective, wolf-in-sheep's-clothing Nazi official.
