Two best friends in a small Scottish town in the summer of ’94 who head out for one last night together before life takes them in different directions. Going to an illegal rave, the boys journey into an underworld of anarchy, freedom and collision with the law as they share a night that they will never forget.
This film had all the ingredients but didn’t work for me.
This is tartan Dazed & Confused territory – one last BIG night fare. And Trainspotting hangs over affairs, with one of the main characters a double-take for Spud and a PoundLand Renton in the tale.
The trouble is it chucks all the ingredients in: Criminal Justice bill, coming Blair; closing down of the mines; police brutality. But they all seem muddled (or incorrect). And many of the characters incredibly one-dimensional.
However, it ends on a tender note as two young men whose bond is strengthened through their shared love of music.
