Irish Feature ‘Good Vibrations’ To Get Cinema Release

Northern Irish feature film ‘Good Vibrations’ will be released in Irish and UK cinemas towards the end of this year after securing a distribution deal with UK distribution company The Works.

The Terri Hooley biopic, which was directed by husband and wife Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, focuses on Hooley’s life in Belfast, which sees him open a record shop (Good Vibrations) at the height of the Troubles in the 1970s, and subsequently try to claw back the spirit of the city of Belfast through music.

Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson wrote the script, which was produced by Andrew Eaton (The Trip), Chris Martin (Peacefire) and musician David Holmes. The film is a co-production between Belfast’s Canderblinks Film & Music, London-based Revolution Films and Dublin’s Treasure Entertainment.

Richard Dormer (Five Minutes of Heaven) stars as Hooley, with Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) and Jodie Whittaker (One Day) also featuring. The film recently opened the Karlovy Film Festival and the Belfast Film Festival, and is set to screen at the Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday July 14.

Speaking to Screen Daily about the cinema release, Laurence Gornall, CEO of The Works Film Group, said ‘Good Vibrations’ is a “remarkable piece of work” and the UK-based distribution company is “looking forward to releasing such a fine movie from this exciting directing partnership”.

While no release date has yet been finalised, IFTN understands the film will not be released until at least November “at the earliest”.

The Works has previously released successful film such as James Marsh’s Oscar-winning ‘Man on Wire’ and Neil Jordan’s ‘The Crying Game’.

‘Good Vibrations’ was funded by Northern Ireland Screen, the European Regional Development Fund, the IFB, BBC Films and BBC NI. Catch ‘Good Vibrations’ and its cast and crew at the Galway Film Fleadh on Saturday July 14 at 9pm.
