Mat Whitecross, who directed the Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, turns his attention to the summer of 1990 and the now legendary Stone Roses gig that forms the background of this coming-of-age tale. School is nearly out for summer (and forever) for five 16-year-old Lads from Manchester. The friends have an impossible dream – get to the gig on Spike Island in the Mersey estuary, meet lead singer Ian Brown and hand him a demo tape of their own songs. But first they need to get their hands on some tickets…
