Northern Soul is the story of a youth culture in the 1970’s, which changed a generation.
No longer satisfied with the prospect of a small town life and a factory production line two young boys dream mof going to America to discover rare records which will help them become the best DJ’s on the scene. This journey forces them to confront rivalry, violence and drug abuse and their friendship is tested to the limit.
This is Northern Soul.

Northern Soul's not just about Motown, or the Mods, or working class culture in the North West. Although it is about some of that, the reality is that it's a lot more complex. It's about a forgotten music that America didn't want, about a compulsive search for obscure sounds that fit the beautiful formula, and about the huge fix of belonging to a community that just knows what it's about by the shivers they get down their spine every time they hear it. And, of course, it's about the detail: pill popping, spin outs, back drops, long leather macs, bowling shirts, bomber jackets, badge laden bags, smoke filled record bars, label obsessions, box shaped handbags, box shaped boxes of records, talcum on the dance floor, tattoos on the neck, Solatio shoes, side pocket baggies, waiting on Wolverhampton station for the midnight train to Wigan, piling into photo booths at service stations along the M6...
Elaine Constantine's film captures all this, and more, within a ninety minute narrative that jaw-droppingly reconstructs the atmosphere of 1974 both in and out of Wigan Casino. Her injection of new, young blood into the scene through her pre-filming Northern Soul dance coaching clubs really adds authenticity to what otherwise could have been a clichéd approximation of how things once were. I can only hope this film helps keep alive the music for a whole new generation. America didn't want it fifty years ago. We need to keep the faith.
Having said all that, the scenes featuring dance floor action were great - the nearest thing I've seen that comes anywhere near actually being at the Casino. The dancing, clapping in time & just the feel off it were really well created.
The soundtrack was great too, but with so many great sounds to choose from it couldn't really fail.
Finally, the clothes & style were perfect (the hairstyles, hardly visible moustaches, Solatio shoes & oxford bags were spot on - I thought I was watching myself 40 years ago).
To sum up - a good film - well worth watching, some great detail, great dance floor scenes, but not quite as good as I'd hoped...
If your into northern soul watch this film,if your not watch it anyway you don't know what your missing.

Had such high expectations for this film (as a Northern Soul devotee). The focus on drugs overshone the magic of that era when northern soul meant so much to so many and lifted... Read morePublished 8 days ago by Caro3683
I wasn't around the first time around (too young) so I have no idea whether or not it's a true representation of the era. But I felt that it gave me a feeling of that time. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
I love Northern Soul music, but was too young to be a part of the scene when it happened, although I was around in the 70s. Read morePublished 14 days ago by JB
I love this film. I grew up in Stockport and many of my friends went to Wigan casino on a Friday night in the 1970s and crawled home on a Saturday after a night of dancing. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Yvonne Middleton
