Set in the 70s in South Wales, this film/musical doesn't disappoint. Not only is there a spectacularly eerie arrangement of music but the characters stories are relatable. The problems these teenagers face range from Homosexuality to peer pressure to family tension. What makes it more interesting (though it's a simple idea) is that it's a musical about making a musical. This gives the excuse for the atmospheric soundtrack, sung by the cast themselves. Completely different to any other musical I have seen. The only thing I didn't like were the predictions of the characters lives at the end of the film. This seemed like a desperate attempt to make the film more believable when it already was quite so. Although, I am willing to overlook this as the film is such a good one.
