A wide-eyed boy in a narrow minded world
Eleven-year-old David Wiseman is mad about cricket but no good at it. He has all of the kit but none of the skill, and he's a laughing stock at school. So when a Jamaican family move in next door and build a cricket net in the back garden, David is in seventh heaven.
But this is 1960's England, and when the neighbours start to make life difficult for the new arrivals, David's Jewish family is caught in the middle, and he has to choose between fitting in and standing up for the new friends who have turned his world upside down.
WONDROUS OBLIVION is both written and directed by Paul Morrison and boasts a fantastic soundtrack combining rock, ska and calypso hits of the time. Including such gems as "I Want to be Free" by Elvis Presley and "Rudy, A Message To You" by Dandy Livingstone to "My Boy Lollipop" by Millie.
