The intriguing genesis, impassioned adherents and unique fashions and dance moves of the Northern Soul scene make it one of the most fascinating of British youth culture movements -- not to mention the music it celebrates, which is quite simply some of the greatest ever made. Shimmy Marcus' dynamic and satisfying coming-of-age film is set right at the pulsing heart of the craze, and features a great UK cast.

Even though the plot of this 1970s-set drama is a bit simplistic, the film is sweet and surprisingly dramatic, holding our attention because of the energetic, good-looking cast. Plus all those groovy outfits and songs.
Everything about SoulBoy is predictable and yet it manages to deliver a passably entertaining little slice of British entertainment.
In the end, there is something just a little too formulaic about the film.
Feels oddly detached from the compelling genre of music it claims to advocate.
It's more than a little clichéd, with a disco-floor bully who's straight out of panto, but the music and period detail will help take your mind off such deficiencies.
Likeable British coming-of-age drama with terrific performances, impressive production design and a superb soundtrack...
