Bolan’s Shoes

This film takes us on a tumultuous journey from the height of T. Rex mania in 1970s Liverpool to the present-day poignancy of what would have been Marc Bolan’s 75th birthday. It captures the heady exhilaration of glam rock mania through the experiences of a group of over-excited kids from a local children’s home before a devastating road accident changes their lives forever. Years later, still clinging to the adoration of her childhood idol, survivor Penny takes her best friend and fellow Marc Bolan fan to visit his shrine in London, where a chance encounter there catapults her back to the horror she had tried so hard to forget. Bolan’s Shoes is a joyful celebration of seventies culture and brims with the energy of that vibrant era, but, like Marc Bolan’s legacy, its retro glitter is dimmed by the tragic repercussions of that deadly road accident. Light-hearted comedy and supernatural chills abound in this inspirational story that explores the enduring legacy of childhood trauma and the life-affirming power of music.
