Movie Info

First brought together by their shared love of music, ten years later Liam and Natalie have reached a breaking point. Opposites attract, but aren't necessarily working long-term. Liam, a struggling musician, cannot let go of his vinyl collection and refuses to adapt to a world of smartphones and instant downloads. Natalie has let go of her dream of designing album covers and has become a rising star at her advertising firm. As they make the difficult decision to separate, they start by splitting their prized music library, but the soundtrack that defined their relationship keeps pulling them back together.

  • It's like a strange and enervating cross between High Fidelity and One Day where everyone on screen makes you want to thump yourself in the face.

  • "Modern Life is Rubbish" has a song in its heart, and it will put one in yours.

    April 27, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • There's a depressingly predetermined quality to this story.

    April 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Much of the movie...is an advertisement for male emotional immaturity.

    April 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film is full of the signifiers of musical devotion but lacks the hummably acerbic insight of the best music it namechecks.

    April 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • For those who delight in candy-coated nostalgia, writer Philip Gawthorne's familiar, clich-heavy script offers a twee jaunt down memory lane. For everyone else, even a killer Britpop soundtrack...can't save the film from overtrodden territory.
