Trailer for ‘Northern Soul’

A vibrant and authentic portrayal of adolescent escapism and self-discovery, set against the high-octane Northern Soul scene of mid-seventies Lancashire.

Northern Soul is the debut feature film from award-winning photographer, Elaine Constantine features performances from Steve Coogan (Philomena, The Trip), John Thomson (The Fast Show, Waterloo Road), Ricky Tomlinson (Mike Bassett: England Manager, Clocking Off) and Lisa Stansfield (The Edge of Love), and tells the tale of the DJ-led movement that developed in bleak industrial North West England, sparked by the discovery of black American soul music.

With an uncompromising script, original soundtrack and fierce attention to detail, Northern Soul faithfully recreates the vibrant all-nighter scene of the 70’s throughout the glory years, and tells an uplifting and honest coming of age story as two best friends confront rivalry, violence and drug abuse, testing their friendship to the limit.

In cinemas: Friday 17th October, 2014
Out on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD: 20th October, 2014
