SHARE THE BIG SCREEN EXPERIENCE
Northern soul fans and film lovers are being invited to share the big screen experience of the British hit, Northern Soul, by gathering with friends to see Elaine Constantine’s stunning directorial début on SOUL MONDAY, November 3rd.
As Northern Soul heads into its third successful week, extra cinema screens have been added for SOUL MONDAY to cater for the increased demand from cinema goers, eager to see Northern Soul on the big screen. Together, cinemas are providing that all important group environment for enjoying the film as a social event.
The feature film from award-winning photographer Elaine Constantine features performances from a stellar British cast, including Steve Coogan, John Thomson, Ricky Tomlinson and Lisa Stansfield and tells the tale of the DJ-led movement that developed in North West England, sparked by the discovery of black American soul music. Northern Soul faithfully recreates the vibrant all-nighter scene of the 70s throughout the glory years, and tells an uplifting and honest coming of age story. Its authenticity is praised by film critics. The Radio Times’ 4 star review calls Northern Soul, “An uplifting, tonally precise, multi-faceted gem”. The Times hails the film ‘pure joy’.
As well as appealing to British film fans, the cinema release has encouraged original northern soul followers to see the film, sometimes reuniting with familiar faces from the 1970s. Dancing in the aisles and rounds of applause have been regular occurrences at venues across the country.
The critically-acclaimed performances from newcomers Elliot James Langridge and Joshua Whitehead, in addition to the increasing popularity of the northern soul movement, have driven a younger audience to the film too. SOUL MONDAY is an opportunity for anyone, whatever their age, to see the film everyone has been talking about. As the Observer’s film critic Mark Kermode says, Northern Soul is “Definitely worth a spin”.
