Awaydays the movie

Awaydays

Not particularly 'mod' (although there were some '79-era mods in the book), Kevin Sampson's superb late-70s set novel, Awaydays has become a movie, hitting cinemas on 22nd May. And we have the trailer and some images right here.

Set during the dawn of the 'football casual' era, Awaydays is in one way a tale of Tranmere Rovers' hooligan following and its meetings with other firms in the third division. But just as much (if not more), it's also a tale of the era – unemployment, drugs, fashion, clubs and the music scene of the day. If it's done well, it should be a gem.

See over the page for a couple of large stills from the movie, as well as the official trailer for it.
