Northern Soul (15) is showing at the Dome Cinema, Worthing tomorrow (Monday November 3rd) and is the Wednesday matinee showing on November 5th.
Northern Soul is a vibrant and authentic portrayal of adolescent escapism and self-discovery, set against the high-octane Northern Soul scene of mid-seventies Lancashire.
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.
Newcomers Elliot James Langridge and Joshua Whitehouse are compelling in the central roles, as John and Matt, who, fuelled by amphetamines and ambition, discover the youth culture that changed a generation.
The stellar supporting cast includes Antonia Thomas (Misfits, Homefront), Jack Gordon (Panic Button, The Great Train Robbery), James Lance (The Look of Love, Boy Meets Girl),Christian McKay (Rush, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Ashley Taylor-Dawson (Hollyoaks).
Running time: 102 minutes.
Show times: Monday November 3rd at 6.00 pm and Wednesday November 5th at 1.00 pm (Wednesday Matinee).
The Dome Cinema is at 21-22 Marine Parade on Worthing seafront.
