VINYL tells is a fictionalised account of Rhyl musician Mike Peters' plot to expose ageism in the music industry with a fictional band playing his song.
I'm not too bothered about the fact that rock concentrates on youth, but I enjoyed this endearing movie about one man's struggle to show that age shouldn't be a barrier to success.
Rhyl film make Sara Sugarman's movie sees 80s rocker Johnny Jones (Phil Daniels) reunite his band Weapons of Happiness for another go at stardom.
There is one minor snag, though: despite the lads having a potential hit single, record companies won't touch them with a 60ft mic stand.
All seems lost until Johnny has a brain wave, and hires a fake band of photogenic youths to front his song.
Daniels is is fine form as Jones, the old rocker trying to recapture his former glories, and the talented band of youngsters are also impressive.
North Wales has long been a location for film makers looking for a beautiful landscapes and historic buildings, but rarely have storylines focused on the region.
Sugarman , however, uses her hometown and surrounding area as a storytelling tool that is almost as important as the characters.
Her love for Rhyl is clear to see throughout Vinyl, but the movie also boasts a feel good tale and strong performances.
Anyone who appreciates an uinderdog battling seemingly impossible odds will enjoy this movie.
