Factory Records, the Hacienda club, Tony Wilson, Happy Mondays, etc, etc. '24 Hour Party People' is an affectionate and humorous trip through Manchester's monster music scene in the 80s and 90s.

Harvey begins to write down his disgruntled observations and with the help of equally cantankerous illustrator, Harry Crumb, ‘American Splendor' is born. This movie of the man's life is an inspired mixture of animation, documentary and dramatisation, with Paul Giamatti finally getting a role worth his talent. Funny, sad, sharp and hip to find out more...

It's April 1st 1982 and with the Argentinean invasion of the Falklands imminent Major Mike Norman is dispatched with 70 Royal Marines to secure the Island. Unfortunately Sir Rex Hunt, the Governor, has not been fully informed and prepares the islanders for battle, so initiating a tragic error of judgement. An Ungentlemanly Act is an almost satirical dramatisation of actual events, superbly acted and as rich in farce as it is pathos. find out more...
