About the Movie

It’s May 1990, and on a red-brick housing estate in the Manchester suburbs, five teenage boys dream of indie-rock stardom. They hatch a plan to hand-deliver a demo tape to their idols The Stone Roses at the band’s impending gig at Spike Island in Cheshire. But when their tickets fail to materialize, the lads are forced to take extreme measures to sneak their way in.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [The Stone Roses'] debut long player is one of the few rock albums that might justly be assessed all killer, no filler; Whitecross and Coghill's sincerely intended love letter to the era, not so much. – Charles Gant, Variety, May 4, 2015

Fresh: Though the story is drawn in broad strokes and overloaded with melodrama, director Mat Whitecross' exuberant feature understands the communal joy and personal necessity of rock 'n' roll. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, May 7, 2015

Fresh: The film has an engagingly zippy and colorful visual style, evoking the splashy Summer of Love motifs around the Roses, with allusions to their music videos and paint-splattered, Jackson Pollock-esque sleeve artwork. – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter, May 4, 2015

Rotten: The heady whirl of the Roses' first album played loud is a treat -- the only one. – Anthony Quinn, Independent (UK), May 4, 2015
