You Instead - Preview

You Instead

Preview by Jack Foley

VALENTINE’S Day comes every year, but the dilemma remains… what to do? Skip the expensive night out and plan the perfect night in with You Instead, on DVD from January 23, 2012, courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment.

You Instead is a free-wheeling, rock ‘n’ roll romcom set against an unforgettable weekend at a music festival – filled with lust, mud, betrayal, portaloos and a hundred thousand people partying to the greatest music in the world.

Directed by the BAFTA®-nominated David Mackenzie (Young Adam, Hallam Foe), You Instead tells the story of Adam, played by Luke Treadaway (Clash of the Titans, Brothers of the Head); a strutting indie star and one half of a globally successful band.

Arriving at the T in the Park 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 Pinks.

With no key in sight the feuding pair have to get through 24 hours as best as they can, delivering not one but two performances while having to placate a jealous girlfriend, an angry boyfriend and a lunatic manager. This is one weekend they will never forget!
