Soulboy – northern soul film lands

Soulboy

I've lost track of all the northern soul films in production, so let's just pretend we've never heard of Soulboy before (even though it's probably been featured on these pages before) and take it as it comes.

So, the plot: 1974. Power cuts, strikes and boot-boy aggro on the terraces. Flares, Chopper bikes and beer at fourteen pence a pint. Joe McCain, 17 and restless, is bored with the flatline tedium of a life that seems like it's going nowhere. Enter Jane, moving to the beat of a music that Joe's never heard, a vision of loveliness who opens the door to a whole world of sound, movement and all-nighter dancing at The Wigan Casino – the home of Northern Soul! Swept along on this tide of pulsating dance and lust, Joe finally finds somewhere he belongs and the acceptance and true love he yearns for.

Ok,  so that's the words, check out the trailer over the page. It's due to hot various cinemas over the summer, look out for preview screenings in your area. More at the website. But not much.
