Brassed Off

Writer and director Mark Herman's debut feature is the passionate, moving story of a small mining community that is struggling to survive after it's announced that its chief industry is scheduled for closure.

Only the colliery brass band, led by Danny (Pete Postlethwaite), remains as the community's point of pride. As moves to close the pit progress, the band sets out on the road to a grand musical contest in London.

Led by Andy (Ewan McGregor) and Gloria (Tara Fitzgerald), the musicians hope to spread the news of their plight to a wider audience, as well as grabbing what could be their last chance of musical glory.
