24 Hour Party People
The story of Tony Wilson, his Factory Records and the legendary Haçienda nightclub is a unique one. With a great deal of comedic drama 24 Hour Party People tells it, all from the punk rock era of ’77 and onwards, through the 80’s post-punk and new wave, to the Madchester Happy Mondays grand finale. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, and receiving top marks from critics, 24 Hour Party People became an instant classic right upon its release.
