The New Music
The New Music, a foot-stomping Irish musical-drama with a big heart and a punk ethos and winner of the 'Spirit of IndieCork' Award in 2019, has released across a number of digital streaming platforms.
This heart-warming feature, which The Guardian described as "a film made with warmth and sincerity… Its feel-good mood is hard to resist,” is now set for its full Irish and UK release on digital streaming services from January 18th courtesy of 101 Films. When talented classical pianist Adrian (Cilléin McEvoy) is diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease, his world falls apart. Afraid of the health implications and failing his family, Adrian runs away from home to Dublin. Finding a room in a shared apartment he meets Will (Jack Fenton), David (Patrick O’Brien), and Jodie (Martina Babisova) a.k.a. The Cellmates - a rebellious punk band who practice what they preach. As a bond forms with his new-found friends, the band's rock‘n’roll lifestyle and raucous music provide a lively distraction from his troubles. The Cellmates are anything but uptight, but will Adrian struggle to adjust, or could he find freedom in their chaos? Directed by Chiara Viale (Clown, Be Frank, The Plait) in her feature debut; Chiara was inspired to write the story following her father's death after having suffered from Multiple System Atrophy; a rare degenerative neurological disorder with symptoms similar to Parkinson's. The film is supported by Young Parkinson’s Ireland and aims to dispel the stigma and shine a light on this rare condition. The eclectic soundtrack includes two original songs by Zac Stephenson of Irish band Munky and woven throughout the film's rock and punk vibes are the classical compositions by Mancunian David Sangster; acclaimed musician and World Parkinson's Congress Ambassador. The New Music is now streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Sky Store, and Chili.
