Before celebrities entertained thousands at Coachella, local DJs inspired a movement in dark, underground basements with Northern Soul. John’s boring suburban life in 1975 England gets turned upside down when he’s introduced to the enthralling music and furious choreography of American soul music by a local DJ, Matt. Sharing a passion in the music’s energy, John and Matt leap into the DJ scene, planning underground concerts and searching for cover-ups, rare Soul discoveries kept hidden with false labels to keep them exclusive. With the help of Matt’s feverous spirit, John begins to shake up his public perception, including standing up to his most critical advisor, Mr. Banks. But with all its insanity comes the club scene’s underbelly, making it difficult for both boys to differentiate being swept up by the beat and hyped up on drugs. With a dream of America implanted in his mind, can John and Matt ignore the distractions and focus on the soul?

Per Theater Chart: Malala and Mars

October 8th, 2015

He Named Me Malala

Only two films were in the $10,000 club this weekend. He Named Me Malala led the way with an average of $15,221 in four theaters, which is very strong for a documentary. The film's reviews are only good, but the appeal here is Malala Yousafzai and I don't think moviegoers are too upset that the film is a little shallow. The Martian was close behind with an average of $14,176. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Shanghaied

October 2nd, 2015

A Christmas Horror Story

It is a bad week for limited releases. Shanghai is the biggest release on this week's list, but that just means it is opening in way too many theaters to thrive. The film I'm most interested in is A Christmas Horror Story, but I do have a well-known pro-Canada bias. More...
