Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast, when the bloody conflict known as 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A love song to both the power of both music and determined political resistance.
Fresh: The team behind Good Vibrations have made a film that is determined to live up to its title, and does so.
Fresh: The gleaming, beaming centrepiece of this boisterous period piece is [Richard] Dormer's magnetic performance. Continually risking himself and his tiny store, he channels the passion and defiance embedded in the music he loves.
Fresh: If the recent Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith was too sugar-sweet for your liking, this relatively ragged affair will do the trick just nicely.
great Rock'n'Roll movie....
This guy is a legend… !
Great story, good vibes, and great film!
Rock'n'Roll at its best!
So refreshing movie! It lightened up my night to see those Irish guys play music like crazy.
