103-minute film. “Amid the wreckage of Ireland’s violent, 20th century ethno-nationalist crisis, an irrepressible musical sound emerged. Punk rock became a crucial, unifying alternative channel for expressing the frustration of living in a hostile, divided society — but this would not have been possible without the dedication of music enthusiast Terri Hooley. Films We Like is delighted to present an inspiring, crowd-pleasing biopic that brings Hooley’s story to the big screen.“ http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tiffbelllightbox/2013/2330002110
