The new Sundance acclaimed film "London Town" is being released on DVD on February 14th, through IFC Films. It tells the story of 15-year Shay as he gets propelled into adulthood when his father's near life-ending accident put the survival of his father's business into Shay's hands. On Shay's travels, he meets Vivian, a fellow teenager who introduces Shay to the music of The Clash. The soundtrack is pure seventies punk-rock, reggae-infused songs from The Clash, as well as music from The Buzzcocks and Toots & The Maytals.
There are a couple of iconic scenes within the movie where Shay befriends Clash lead singer Joe Strummer, played brilliantly by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Shay's eyes become wide open after attending a Clash concert and listening to the government rebellion that The Clash sing about. Young actor Daniel Huttlestone is the perfect pic for Shay as his youthful face hides a dark side that he needs to unleash in a few scenes in the movie. Director Derrick Borte tells a concise story without veering away for the main story as he magically works the punk-rock scene in London within the story. A wonderful tale that showcases the importance of music within the lives of young adults. To find out more about the newly released "London Town" DVD, please visit londontownfilm.com.
