This film is almost an all time classic story of the Madchester scene and The Hacienda. For those of us lucky enough to have been there it brings back a lot of the memories that certain substances may have made rather vague! Saying that the plot is not a 100% truth, it's mainly Anthony H Wilsons career story intermingled with sections of his personal life and the founding & ending of Factory Records with lots of bands and fantastic music thrown in. Keep your eyes open for some of the cameo appearances from members of the groups of the day, and other famous yet somewhat unexpected faces in roles (Peter Kay is in there for one!) Fans of Joy Division/New Order, Happy Mondays and those with memories of The Hacienda buy this film. Hell, buy it anyway, it'll show you what you missed.
