Swing Kids

I often wonder how much the studio messed with this Thomas Carter film and the Hollywood ending would be the main reason why. A fair look at the youth of Germany during World War II and how some protested the Nazi movement, in this particular case with the use of swing music and dance halls. We once again receive a great performance from Christian Bale as well as HOUSE star Robert Sean Leonard but sadly the script at times seems so forced SWING KIDS never manages to ring authentic. Kenneth Branagh and Barbara Hershey add some extra weight to the acting calibre but all is ulitmately lost with the "swing hiel" ending.
