About the film:
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 its going nowhere. Enter Jane, moving to the beat of a music that Joes 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!

Cannot find out any where when this film is released. it wont be on long in Npton as it wont be a massive box office hit, it will only appeal to those who ove the Northern soul scene. Please can some one e mail and let me know the release date or I will have to wait until its released on DVD.

Been waiting for the release date? the only thing that will spoil this for me is that i understand they are not playing any original N.Soul sounds its music is based on paul weller & Duffy etc to me this has no bearing what so ever on the 70's Soul scene i cant understand why they have done this so dissapointing so for me o.k but no cigar !

its all classic northern stompers covered by modern artists that play soul influenced music (paul weller; his new album had a northern style song on it, duffy cos 'mercy' was meant to be a northern classic style) i think its just trying to make it appeal to a contemporary audience as well as the old soul scene

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE SOULED OUT... Saw Brenan Reece in Quadrophenia last night at the 'Grand Theatre' Wolverhampton- AWSOME!

This film sounds like 'My Life'. Though a little younger at the time I still managed to go places I should'nt & had the best time ever!

NEED to know the release date asap. PLEASE!!!
