AwayDays will be on general
release, nationwide in late May 2009.
" Adapted by Kevin
Sampson from his own cult novel, Awaydays is an exuberant thrill, an outstanding
rites of passage movie with intelligence and depth that is superior to any
recent film dealing with hooliganism. The violence is brutal and horribly
realistic; period details are impeccably recreated; and the strident, post-punk
soundtrack that propels the action is superb."
