Synopsis

Shy would-be musician Jon is asked to fill in last minute for bizarre indie band "Soronprfbs" after their keyboardist flips out and can’t perform. He joins the band as they travel to Ireland to record an album in seclusion, led by frontman Frank, who never removes his giant papier-måché head. Jon posts clips on the internet of their rehearsals, building up their fanbase before they take to the road in the US to perform at the South by Southwest festival. Inspired by 1980s television persona Frank Sidebottom - whose band film co-writer Jon Ronson was in, this is a very dark and funny satire of music-world cliches.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
