Our regular date night turned into a movie night last night and it was April's turn to choose. After the first 5 of her films were not available on Netflix (must be something down to her taste in films) we settled down to watch Northern Soul.
My interest was perked when I saw that Steve Coogan was in it. Unfortunately only for a couple of scenes.
It was good though, it was set up tut north back in the 70s so had a bit of Kes about it. I quipped that they probably didn't need to make a set for half of the street scenes as they won't have changed much since they were originally built. Shithole then, shithole now.
The film is about a couple of lads trying to save enough money to go to America so that they can buy as yet unheard soul music to take back to the UK. Not bad.
