Starring Martin Compston, Felicity Jones & Alfie Allen
It's 1974 in the Midlands where power cuts, strikes and boot-boy aggro on the football terraces are the norm. Joe McCain (Martin Compston: The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and best friend Russ Mountjoy (Alfie Allen: Atonement) are stuck in dead-end jobs and bored with lives going nowhere.
That is until Joe meets Jane (Nichola Burley: Streetdance 3D), who introduces him to a whole new world of sound and movement and all-night dancing: the Wigan Casino, home of Northern Soul. Before long Joe finds himself caught between aspiring artist Mandy (Felicity Jones: The Tempest, Cemetery Junction), and Jane who is already involved with Alan (Craig Parkinson : Control, Four Lions), the undisputed king of the Northern Soul dance floor.
Also starring Irish superstar Pat Shortt (Garage) SoulBoy is an infectious get up and dance movie covering all the classics of the era including Tainted Love and The In Crowd as well as the cover version of Magic Carpet Ride by soul sensation Gabriella Cilmi.
