This is an aural treat, with a superb soundtrack and live performances. A biopic of Belfast music legend Terri Hooley, who established a record shop called Good Vibrations and then moved into record production after an epiphany inspired by a visit to a punk concert. From The Shangri Las to The Outcasts in one night and from there to giving punk an outlet in 70's Belfast - a time when Belfast was a war zone. The impact this has on Hooley and his beloved punks is truly eye-opening. It's this simmering sense of dread and conflict which gives Good Vibrations its edge, and allows its many moments of uplift to shine that much brighter.

Thanks to The Works.
