'Good Vibrations' Trailer Charts The Rise Of The Undertones (Video)

The trailer for 'Good Vibrations' hints at a bright future for a movie already nominated for three Irish Film and Television Awards for Best Film, Best Actor and Best Costume. The movie stars Richard Dormer as the Godfather of Belfast music, Terri Hooley - the man responsible for discovering The Undertones and recording seminal single 'Teenage Kicks.'

The film, which premiered at the London Film Festival in October, boasts a strong supporting cast, including Jodie Whittaker, currently starring opposite Olivia Colman and David Tennant in ITV's acclaimed drama 'Broadchurch.' Dormer turns in a stunning performance as Hooley, a radical music-lover and owner of Belfast's most famous record shop, Good Vibrations. He becomes the unlikely leader of a motley crew of kids and punks, discovering Fergal Sharkey's The Undertones, a band that brought the city's musical scene back to life in times of uncertainty.  

Mr Hooley, a man also known for head-butting John Lennon after the Beatle said something in support of the IRA, is played effortlessly by Dormer who is rightfully nominated for Best Actor at the IFTA's. A heart-warming and uplifting tale already gaining comparisons to The Commitments, Good Vibrations was a hit at the 2012 Galway Film Fleadh, where it won Best Irish Feature.

Good Vibrations hits cinemas in the UK on March 29, 2013.
