Jon, a young wanna-be musician, discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins an eccentric pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank.
The scene in which Frank chases Jon whilst trying to hit him with a shovel and yelling "It'll be worth it!" was improvised by Michael Fassbender. Frank was actually just supposed to be running around, not involving Jon in any way.
Wow, this is beautiful. What do you call it?
Clara: Stay away from my fucking theremin.
As the band are in the van driving to the ferry terminal they are shown at a road junction with signs indicating that it is at the A55 and M6 taking a turn off for North Wales. The M6 heads North from the Midlands to Cumbria and at no point is there a junction with the A55 which runs from Chester to Holyhead (where the ferry terminal from Wales to Ireland departs).
The credits roll with colored tiles floating and rotating in the background. At one point for a second, the tiles form Frank's head.
