|Minnie Driver On Hunky Dory|
Star and director Marc Evans on their Bowie-tinged musical
Set in a South Wales high school back in the sticky, sweltering summer of 1976, Hunky Dory is a musical drama with a shake in its hip and a tambourine in its hand. Don't be put off, though. It's no dippy-hippie take on Glee. This film is 100% Bowie endorsed, with an extra dose of ELO and The Velvet Underground for good measure. With Minnie Driver playing an idealistic teacher turning her teenage students into junior rock stars, it's a tribute to a heady time for music and an even headier time of life. Driver and her director, the talented Marc Evans, chatted to Empire about the film.
