Luke Treadaway (Brothers of the Head, Clash of the Titans) stars as strutting indie star Adam, one half of globally successful duo The Make. Arriving at the T in the Park music festival for his latest gig Adam finds himself accidentally handcuffed to Morello, played by Natalia Tena (Mrs. Henderson Presents, Harry Potter), lead singer for all girl punk band The Dirty Pink’s . With no key in sight the feuding pair have to get through the weekend as best they can delivering not one but two performances whilst having to placate a jealous girlfriend, an angry boyfriend and a lunatic manager. This is one weekend they will never forget.
YOU INSTEAD is a free-wheeling, rock ‘n’ roll romantic comedy set against an unforgettable lost weekend at a music festival, filled with lust, mud, betrayal, portaloos and a hundred thousand people partying to the greatest music in the world.
Starring Luke Treadaway and Natalia Tena alongside Ruta Gedmintas (Lip Service), Sophie Wu (Kick Ass), Gavin Mitchell (Still Game) and Alastair Mackenzie (Perfect Sense).
Directed by David Mackenzie (Perfect Sense, Hallam Foe, Young Adam), and produced by Gillian Berrie (Perfect Sense, Red Road, Hallam Foe, Dogville) for Sigma Films. The film is from a script by award winning painter and novelist (but first time screenwriter) Thomas Leveritt.
