A love song to both the power of both music and determined political resistance.

An impassioned, funny and monumentally likable myth-making comedy.

The film does most things by the book but it's still an interesting biopic about a person that you probably won't be familiar with.

The team behind Good Vibrations have made a film that is determined to live up to its title, and does so.

The Australian

Chock full of vigour, great punk tunes and larrikin wit, this feel-good film tells the story of Terri Hooley, a man who brings music to a battered 1970s Belfast.

Hits them emotional high points far too early in the film and is just kinda lost interest near the end.

Another good film that set in a record store. The fact that it's based on a true story is even better.
