In den späten 70er Jahren ging in der englischen Musikszene und den Charts kein Weg an Ian Dury and the Blockheads vorbei. Mit seinen wilden Auftritten und seinen respektlosen und selbstironischen Texten war er einer der schillerndsten Pop-Figuren des Jahrzehnts. Erleben Sie in „Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" die Lebensgeschichte des Mannes, der Zeit seines Lebens mit seiner Behinderung zu kämpfen hatte und niemals Mitleid dafür wollte. Ian Dury (Andy Serkis) erzählt durch seine Lieder auf der Bühne die Geschichte seines bewegten Lebens. Wie seine erste Karriere in den 60ern kläglich scheitert und ihn die schöne Denis (Naomie Harris) und sein genialer, zukünftiger Partner Chaz (Tom Hughes) wieder aufrichten. Von seiner Frau Betty (Olivia Williams), die ihn mit rigorosen Mitteln an seine Vaterpflichten erinnert. Von seiner zerrissenen Beziehung zum eigenen, strengen Vater (Ray Winstone). Eine musikalische und schauspielerische Tour der Force, die die wilden, punkigen 70er Jahren wieder aufleben lässt. (Originaltitel - Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll) © Universum Film

24 Hour Party People
Manchester 1976: Cambridge educated Tony Wilson (Steve Coogan), Granada TV presenter, is at a Sex Pistols gig. Totally inspired by this pivotal moment in music history, he and his friends set up a record label, Factory Records, signing first Joy Division (who go on to become New Order) then the Happy Mondays, who become seminal artists of their time. What ensues is a tale of music, sex, drugs, larger-than-life characters, and the birth of one of the most famous dance clubs in the world, The Hacienda - a mecca for clubbers as famous as the likes of Studio 54. Graphically depicting the music and dance heritage of Manchester from the late 70s to the early 90s, the movie documents the vibrancy that made Madchester the place in the world that you would most like to be.
Telstar: The Joe Meek Story
Set against the backdrop of hedonistic, swinging, early '60s London, Telstar shares the stranger-than-fiction true story of Joe Meek (Tony Award-winner Con O'Neill, who originated the role on London stage). An enormously talented but quirky maverick who blazed a unique path as the world's first independent music producer, Meek changed the industry forever and earned adulation as a pioneer of British pop. He enjoyed enormous success early on with the biggest selling record of its time, Telstar, the first British album to hit #1 on American charts. But the flamboyant, tone-deaf songwriter was also a deeply troubled soul -- dabbling in the occult and addicted to amphetamines -- and his decline was as meteoric and spectacular as his rise. Bad luck, depression, heartbreak and paranoia soon lead to violence and self-destruction. Also starring two-time Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, The Usual Suspects) and Pam Ferris (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). Original Soundtrack Features: Arthur Askey, The Blue Rondos, Duffy, The Flee-Rekkers, Billy Fury, Heinz, Honeycombs, Alan Klein, Johnny Leyton, The Moontrekkers, The Outlaws, The Packabeats, Screaming Lord Sutch & the Savages, Syndicats, The Tornados and Gene Vincent.
The life of Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones was as wild as it was short, filled with gorgeous groupies, unimaginable decadence, and groundbreaking music. By age 26, he had achieved enormous fame and fortune; a year later he would be dead. The story of rocks forgotten father, Stoned unravels the mystery surrounding his death while re-living the sex, drugs, and rock and roll that made the sixties swing.
Starring Samantha Morton (Minority Report) and Alexandra Maria Lara (Downfall) and featuring an incredible performance from newcomer Sam Riley (24 Hour Party People) as Ian Curtis, Control documents the relationship with both his wife and his girlfriend, his battle with epilepsy and the road to success with this band, Joy Division.
No One Knows About Persian Cats
NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS is the fifth feature by award-winning director Bahman Ghobadi (A TIME FOR DRUNKEN HORSES, TURTLES CAN FLY), winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the Cannes film festival. Co-written by imprisoned Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi, the film is an indictment of cultural repression in Iran's exciting underground music scene, a powerful cinematic foreshadowing of current protest movements, and a celebration of an entire generation of Iranians striving towards personal and creative freedom.
Shot in secret and featuring extraordinary performances by real underground bands, NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS follows a pair of young musicians, recently released from prison, on a mission to take their rock band to Europe. Forbidden by the authorities to play in Iran, they plan their escape abroad with a fast-talking music promoter...
