Manchester, 1976. Tony Wilson (Steve Coogan) is an ambitious but frustrated local TV news reporter looking for a way to make his mark. After witnessing a life-changing concert by an unknown band known as the Sex Pistols, he persuades his station to televise one of their performances, and soon Manchester's punk groups are clamoring for him to manage them.
Riding the wave of a musical revolution, Wilson and his friends create the legendary Factory Records label and The Hacienda club, and bands like Joy Division, New Order, and the Happy Mondays emerge to change the industry forever.
Packed with an incredible soundtrack and a famous cast of characters, 24 Hour Party People is a sprawling, energetic, and humorous history of one of the most important periods in modern music.What the critics are saying:"Brilliantly realised and hilariously funny, 24 Hour Party People is great fun. Don't miss it."- Jamie Russell, BBCi"This is the no-exit sound of claustrophobia colliding with agoraphobia, of breaking point stretched to infinity, of driving in circles in the sallow twilight."- Dennis Lim, The Village Voice"Like the music, the film is outspoken, roaringly funny, defiantly sexual and relentlessly in your face."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
