The poster for the multi-IFTA-nominated Belfast music biopic Good Vibrations has just been completed, and you can see it on RTÉ TEN.

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 tells the story of the legendary Belfast record shop of the same name and its founder, Terri Hooley.

It will be released in cinemas on Friday 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, its cast and crew are nominated in four categories at this year's IFTAs: Best Film, Best Actor (Richard Dormer), the IFB Rising Star Award (Lisa Barros D'Sa and Glenn Leyburn) and Best Costume Design (Maggie Donnelly).

The film won the Best Irish Feature award at last year's Galway Film Fleadh and the Audience Award at the Belfast Film Festival.
