Film description

Spike Island is a music-centred film set back in 1990. It tells the story of an unsigned band from the suburbs of Manchester, named Shadow Caster, and the journey the young musicians make toward Spike Island, Cheshire, in occasion of the Stone Roses’ gig, that then became legendary. 

Written by Chris Coghill and directed by Mat Whitecross, Spike Island stars Elliott Tittensor (Shameless) and Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones) among others. 

The film will play at the 56th London Film Festival, before opening in the UK in 2013.
