1974, and young lives are changing – on the dancefloor of the Wigan casino.
The intriguing genesis, impassioned adherents and unique fashions and dance moves of the Northern Soul scene make it one of the most fascinating of British youth culture movements – not to mention the music it celebrates, which is quite simply some of the greatest ever made. Shimmy Marcus’ dynamic and satisfying coming-of-age film is set right at the pulsing heart of the craze, and features a great UK cast.

#10 / Monday 28 June, 2010 / 15:38 GMTEnjoyed the film, although thought the ending disappointingly weak. Why ruin a gritty piece of humorous Northern nostagia with a ridiculously Hollywoodesque 'dance off'? Strictly bollocks in other words. Other than that it was well acted, has a great soundtrack and I'm sure will do reasonably well at the box office.
