First Trailer For Northern Soul

Though it has been covered well in documentaries and books, there hasn’t been a film that specifically targeted the musical movement of Northern Soul that swept the north of England in the 1970s. Elaine Constantine’s film aims to change that, and the trailer is now online.

Northern Soul follows John Clarke (Elliot James Langridge) and his friends, who dream of cornering the market for this exploding musical style in their small town. Rejecting a future slogging on the production line, the friends dream of going to America in search of the ultra-rare records that will help them to become the premier DJs on the Northern Soul scene.

But it won’t be as easy as that, with parents and teachers against them and the police none too happy about the wilder fringes of the movement.

**Northern Soul **also features Steve Coogan, Lisa Stansfield, Ricky Tomlinson, John Thomas, Antonia Thomas, James Lance and Claire Garvey and hits our screens on October 17, shortly before a digital download/Blu-ray release on October 20.
