Jack Hartley and Helen Smith in Rocket's Island

Rocket’s Island (2012)

In the heart of the Isle of Man, surrounded by the Irish Sea, is one hundred and sixty-seven hectares of up and down land that has its own wood, stream and cave. Above, the sky is blacker and the stars brighter than anywhere on the mainland, and far beneath long-abandoned lead mines bob and weave for miles around. The island is a haven where children with all sorts of difficulties and backgrounds can finally feel free. It may not be the biggest land mass, but this place is Rocket’s universe – this is.. Rocket's Island.
