A breathless story of mismatched love, as two rival rock stars are accidentally handcuffed together at T in the Park festival (where the whole thing was filmed onsite over two days at the 2010 edition). Moments of inspiration and a certain scruffy charm are marred by awful dialogue and jarring plot contrivances.

Poor dialogue lets down an otherwise whimsical love story

(15) 80min This breathless mismatched love story, filmed entirely over two days at T in the Park 2010, is the first of two new Scottish films from David Mackenzie (Young Adam, Hallam Foe), the second being next month’s Glasgow-set sci-fi Perfect Sense.
