This is a great movie about the power of good music in a troubled place & time
"A vibrant, hilarious and inspirational biopic of Terri Hooley, Belfast's "Godfather of Punk," whose upstart record shop and music label Good Vibrations became the hub of the city's nascent '70s punk scene and a voice of resistance to the sectarian violence of the Troubles. As the bloody sectarian violence of the Troubles tears apart 1970s Belfast, fanatical music lover Terri Hooley (Richard Dormer) stages his own kind of protest: he opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile stretch of road in all of Europe and quixotically dubs it Good Vibrations. Discovering a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scene, Hooley starts an indie record label and becomes the unlikely ringleader of a band of young musical rebels who set out to create a new community free of the decades-old hatreds that are splitting their city apart."
