WIN A SPIKE ISLAND DVD AND GOODIE BAG
Spike Island is out now on DVD and Blu-ray. Mat Whitecross’ nostalgic snapshot of 90’s Manchester follows five enterprising 16-year-old lads through 72 hours that shape their future, on the road to see The Stone Roses in their legendary Spike Island gig.
Gary ‘Tits’ Titchfield (Elliot Tittensor – Shameless), Darren ‘Dodge’ Howard (Nico Mirallegro – Upstairs Downstairs, The Village), ‘Chris ‘Zippy’ Weeks, ‘Little Gaz’ Duffy and ‘Penfold’ Andrew Peach are Shadow Caster, a wannabe band on the verge of leaving school and conquering the world.
Written by Chris Coghill (24 Hour Party People, Shameless) and directed by Mat Whitecross (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, The Road To Guantanamo, Ashes), Spike Island is about the feeling of being 16, when music and your friends are your entire world, and a lifetime feels like forever. Nothing will stop them from getting to the gig, but their journey tests their friendships to the limits and their lives change forever.
