“Looks, feels and crucially sounds true to its sweaty-hazy, slightly cramped corner of history.”~The Guardian

Aroview: Depicting the same youth subculture dramatised in 2010's SOULBOY, this offers an equally vivid recreation of the eponymous Lancashire music scene in 1974, where the discovery of American soul music offered excitement and respite from the doledrums of Harold Wilson's Britain.

The film follows a couple of lads who become obsessed with unearthing unknown soul 45s and establishing themselves as top DJ's. Their dance and amphetamine fuelled quest confronts them with darker elements and tests their friendship to the limit.
