Moon Dogs 
Director Philip John, UK 2016, 1h30m 
Watch the trailer 

An anarchic, funny, sexy coming-of-age movie, following two teenage step brothers on a road trip across Scotland and the enigmatic girl who comes between them. 

Michael (Jack Parry-Jones) lives with his step-brother and music genius Thor (Christy O’Donnell) in Shetland. Thrust together by their parents’ marriage they barely talk – but when Thor ruins Michael’s chances of going to university with his girlfriend Suzy they embark on a chaotic road trip that will push their tenuous relationship to the brink. En route they encounter Caitlín (Tara Lee), a wild, Irish free spirit who dreams of being a singer. The boys fall in love with her as they adventure towards Glasgow.

“A deft blend of mismatched-buddy road movie, coming-of-age comedy and youthful love triangle.” Screen Daily   

A film that, years from now, folks will feel a Commitments-level of affection for. Recalling the best of Bill Forsyth… Moon Dogs feels like something special.” hmv.com
