“Impresses with its unique voice and endearingly catchy songs”



“The choice of Luke Perry to play an ageing rocker pays off hugely” The Hollywood News 4/5

“A fulfilling emotional journey, great original songs and a heart-warming story. Has a sound of its own that’ll have you tapping your feet.” The Flickering Myth ****

Star Luke Perry commented: I’m so very happy about this. The little movie that could is well on its way to becoming the little movie that did.”

Producer Fiona Gillies said: “We’re so pleased at Scoop Films to be getting our second BIFA nomination. Everything about The Beat Beneath My Feet turned out just great. We are glad that the general public is getting a chance to see the film at Clapham Picturehouse and the David Lean Cinema and we are excited that this recognition from BIFA will help us to bring The Beat Beneath My Feet to the wider film-going public.”
