CINEMA-goers will get to enjoy Keady actor Michael Colgan’s long-awaited and critically-acclaimed performance in ‘Good Vibrations’ when it is released across the UK and Ireland this Friday, March 29.
A labour of love for all involved, this is one of the most eagerly anticipated films to come out of Belfast for many years.
Good Vibrations is the heart-warming and uplifting story of Belfast music legend Terri Hooley, the man responsible for discovering The Undertones and recording Teenage Kicks, giving alternative music a chance to flourish in 1970s Belfast.
Terri Hooley (Richard Dormer) is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast when the Troubles shuts down his city. As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations.
Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s nascent underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life!
Good Vibrations has already lifted the Galway Film Fleadh Audience Award and was nominated for three Irish Film and Television Awards including Best Film, Best Actor for Richard Dormer, and Costume for Maggie Donnelly.
