3 Mile Limit ★★★

In 1965, the New Zealand radio waves were controlled by the government which banned any sort of pop music. A group of young men were determined to start a pirate radio station on a ship outside the 3-mile limit. This well made, but totally predictable real-life story, was entertaining enough. But we've seen this before in the 2009 film Pirate Radio...exchange England and New Zealand, add a touch of tragedy and marital discord, and there's not much difference in the stories.
