Scotland. 1994. A universal story of friendship, rebellion, and the irresistible power of music set against the backdrop of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, which banned unlicensed raves across the UK, Beats follows best friends and polar opposites Johnno and Spanner who, realizing they are destined for different futures, sneak out to an illegal party in pursuit of one last crazy night together. 

Based on an award-winning play by Scottish playwright Kieran Hurley, Beats gracefully blends in-the-moment euphoria and bittersweet reflection to produce an instant-classic coming-of-age tale: Imagine Fellini’s I Vitelloni set to a throbbing techno beat. Filmed in gorgeous black and white, with Steven Soderbergh as executive producer, “Beats finds real poignancy in the bond between two teenage misfits as they enter a wonderland of rebellion and romance. A heady solidarity is forged in the sweaty bodies, casual encounters and carefree exuberance of youth gathered in the pursuit of a good time.” -Glasgow International Film Festival

NOTEBeats contains a sequence of flashing lights which may affect guests with photosensitive epilepsy or other photo-sensitivities.
