Wigan. The birthplace of northern soul and home of
the world's most famous pier. A place Jason knows is
wonderful because it contains everything he'll ever
need: an endless stream of beer, girls and weekends
where anything can happen. A town Denise wants to
settle in forever with her boyfriend and baby, and
somewhere Mark dreams of escaping but feels
unavoidably trapped by.
Jason's family and friends may not have much, but they
do have each other. However, when their personal and
collective lives start spiralling out of control, as
the revelry is replaced by reality, even being
together may not be enough.
The grittiest and most realistic depiction of the
north since Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Wigan
is Wonderful uncovers everyday life at its most
desperate and most sublime.
