Bolan’s Shoes

Ian Puleston-Davies | 2023 | 95 MINS
UK
Starring Timothy Spall, the film follows the tumultuous journey from the height of T. Rex mania in 1970s Liverpool to the present-day poignancy of what would have been Marc Bolan's 75th birthday.

In Detail

It captures the heady exhilaration of glam rock mania through the experiences of a group of over-excited kids from a local children's home before a devastating road accident changes their lives for ever.

Years later, and still clinging to the adoration of her childhood idol, survivor Penny takes best friend and fellow Marc Bolan fan to visit his shrine in London but a chance encounter there catapults her back to the horror she had tried so hard to forget. Bolan's Shoes is a joyful celebration of Seventies culture and brims with the energy of that vibrant era.

Look out for the Marc Bolan/T. Rex documentary ‘Angelheaded Hipster’ also screening this season from 6 Oct.
