About the Movie
Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days. Sound It Out is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England. A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, Sound It Out documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop. A real life version of "High Fidelity", Sound It Out is a distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Ms. Finlay's smartly assembled film is an affectionate portrait of a shrinking group of record collectors under technological siege.
Fresh: Finlay's handheld style is as casually intimate as her subjects, and the film stirringly posits music as a path to communal bliss.
Fresh: Finlay takes a gentle approach with her subjects, letting their passion - and hers - guide the doc, which was crowd-source funded by more than 250 donors.
Fresh: As Tolstoy might have put it, "good record stores are all alike," whatever their size or stock or the number of tattoos sported by their customers.
