Set in Lancashire in 1974, the film follows Matt and John as they leave behind a humdrum life of youth clubs and factory lines to chase a dream of travelling to the US, unearthing unknown soul 45s and establishing themselves as top DJ’s on the Northern soul music scene. Their dance and amphetamine fuelled quest brings them into contact with some of the darker elements of the scene and tests their friendship to its limits.
A massive indie cinema hit, utterly underestimated by the big film distributors. Authentic period charm. Constantine captures the energy of the dancehall with aplomb.’ Mark Kermode.
