A hugely enjoyable film
I was 18 in 1972 and was introduced to NS in more a less the same way so I can identify with the characters and the era. A good story line with decent enough acting. It brought back memories our trips to the Mecca and Wigan. It was a quality time in my life and it's hard to describe to younger generations how good the music and atmosphere was. This film gives an insight into that. Great film that I really enjoyed watching.
Topic was a good excuse to make a movie. It is a very interesting time in the British music world. The plot seems choppy with the characters fighting, swearing and drugging their brains out, I guess it portrays British working society as very gritty, dingy, and inspirationally bleak. They need to be lifted up and find a refuge in the obscure soul music from America. The movie doesn't flow well, maybe due to all the violence the characters are caught up in. Dialog, plot all of it weak, but captures the essence of the era in the look and feel quite well and the characterization of working class youth going nowhere. There was an amazing radio show on CITR at one time called "Shake a Tailfeather" that played all of this northern soul, but it seemed to have come to an end, don't know what happened to the DJ or show. Anyways it is a movie tackling an obscure time in music history, worth watching.
the dancing is fun
It's 1974 Lancashire in northern England. John is a meek student bullied at school. Mr. Banks (Steve Coogan) is his teacher. His parents force him to attend the youth club where outgoing DJ Matt is dancing to northern soul. When the school bully attacks, John joins Matt to stand up against him. The two fast-friends rebel against the small town ways and lose themselves to DJ for a growing audience. John falls hard for black nurse Angela.The two guys are not the most engaging. I think the characters are suppose to be 18. One guy looks like he's trying to be younger while the other isn't even trying. There is a danger of too young that is missing from these guys. The drama isn't really here and the plot is pretty thin. There is subplot of drugs that isn't that appealing. There is still some fun. I love the music and the flare pants. I love that the dance hall audiences struggling to figure out Matt's wild dancing. I applaud the commitment. It's not as much fun as one wants in a movie of this nature.
