Exclusive: Taking Woodstock Poster

Acclaimed in Cannes and Venice, Ang Lee's '60s odyssey Taking Woodstock has been quietly winning over the critics. It now has a long-awaited UK release date - November 13 - and an eyecatching new one-sheet to deliver a group of shiny, happy, possibly lysergic people to your Friday morning.

A comedy-drama with the emphasis on the funny, Taking Woodstock sees Lee add Sixties counterculture to cinema's most culturally diverse CV. Set in the summer of 1969, it follows interior designer Elliot Tiber's (Demetri Martin) efforts to help his parents' failing Catskills motel. When the organisers of the Woodstock Music And Arts Festival pitch up looking for a venue, he and his friends (Emile Hirsch, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and a cross-dressing Liev Schreiber) find themselves in the middle of a epoch-defining event.

We're loving the poster (especially the cows clearly on the run from David Lynch's subsconscious), and, as the pull-quote suggests, we're pretty keen on the movie too.

Taking Woodstock is out in cinemas on November 13.
