Northern Soul, the brand new debut feature film from director Elaine Constantine, is now showing in selected cinemas across the UK and also available to buy on DVD and Bluray. It stars HH clients JACK GORDON and ALEX ESMAIL.
Northern Soul is the story of a youth culture in the 1970s which changed a generation. It tells the tale of a nightclub-based movement which developed in Northern England and offers an authentic and uplifting account of John and Matt, two young boys whose horizons are opened up by the discovery of black American soul music. No longer satisfied with the prospect of a small town life and a factory production line, they dream of going to America to discover super rare records which will help them become the best DJs on the Northern Soul scene. The difficult journey forces the two best friends to confront rivalry, violence and drug abuse as their friendship and loyalties are tested to the limit.
With an affectionate portrayal of a small-town ’70s Lancashire, Northern Soul evokes the exhilaration of a new musical scene and tells the story of a youth culture that changed a generation and influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come. The film also boasts a stunning soundtrack featuring numerous vinyl gems and ‘Northern Soul’ classics, including Edwin Starr, The Salvadores and Frankie Valli. Go see it on a big screen near you!
