Good Vibrations, the award-winning music biopic which tells the story of the legendary Belfast record shop of the same name and its founder, Terri Hooley, is to be released in cinemas in March.

Directed by Lisa Barros D'Sa and Glenn Leyburn and starring Richard Dormer, Jodie Whittaker, Liam Cunningham, Adrian Dunbar, Dylan Moran and Killian Scott, Good Vibrations will be released on March 29.

The synopsis of the movie says: "Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast, when the bloody conflict known as the Troubles shuts down his city. As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half-mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scene.

"Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an Alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life."

Good Vibrations won the Best Irish Feature award at this year's Galway Film Fleadh and the Audience Award at the Belfast Film Festival.
