You may watch below a preview clip of Beats, the upcoming drama movie directed by Brian Welsh based on a script he co-wrote with Kieran Hurley and starring Cristian Ortega, Lorn MacDonald, and Laura Fraser:
Beats – Girls
“Set in 1994, just as the Criminal Justice Bill attempted to place restrictions on Scotland’s rave culture and the free party movement, BEATS is story of friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of gathered youth. A universal coming-of-age story, set to a soundtrack as eclectic and electrifying as the scene it gave birth to, BEATS is a story for our time.
Best mates Johnno and Spanner share a deep bond. Now on the cusp of adulthood, life is destined to take them in different directions – Johnno’s family are moving him to a new town and a better life, leaving Spanner behind to face a precarious future. But this summer is going to be different for them, and for the country. The explosion of the free party scene and the largest counter-cultural youth movement in recent history is happening across the UK.”
The release date of the movie is set to May 17, 2019 (in Ireland and the UK).
