Michael Winterbottom is certainly one of the movieland’s most diverse independent filmmakers. He’s not scared to try any genre from Television, feature film even documentary. For his latest movie On The Road, he returns to his musical roots following the British music stars Wolf Alice on tour promoting their debut album.
Lorton Distribution is set to release the movie in the UK and Ireland with a limited cinematic release and today we get a chance to check the official trailer and poster. Going by the festival circuit reviews the movies have made a big noise with glowing reviews.
ON THE ROAD follows North London rock four-piece Wolf Alice as they take to the streets of the UK to promote their debut album, My Love Is Cool, for the last time. Driving from city to city, playing 16 cities in three weeks, the band are joined by Estelle (Leah Harvey), an intern with the band’s record company, who will be helping the band with their promotional duties, accompanying them as they visit local radio stations and give interviews to the press. Estelle strikes up a intimate friendship with Joe (James McCardle), a member of the band’s road crew, and through their eyes, we see both the magic and monotony of life on the road, giving us a glimpse behind the scenes of a passionate young rock band in their searing prime.
On The Road will be in cinemas from 29th September.
