Denver, summer 1987. A group of quirky and confused teenagers are about to have their lives changed forever over the course of one night when the news hits them that their heroes, iconic British band The Smiths, are splitting.

Young and feisty Cleo doesn’t know what to do with her life and dreams of running away to Paris. Dean, who works in the local record store, has a huge crush on her but doesn’t know how to tell her.

As Cleo and her friends start a night of hard partying to mourn their musical loss, Dean is driven to a more daring and dangerous form of tribute: he decides to hold up the local radio station at gunpoint and make the DJ play nothing but Smiths tracks for the entire night. And with the radio at full blast, the group of friends will go on a journey of self-discovery that will transform them forever.

Memoriam: In loving memory of Tommy Holmes

Notes:

  • “The making of this movie from over 400 individual homes was completely unprecedented, and relied entirely on the talent, ingenuity, and dedication of everyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios. The filmmakers would like to thank them for their tireless hard work, good humor, and most of all patience… with our inability to properly use the internet. (Dude, you’re still on mute.)”
  • There is a digital short that plays before the movie called “Us Again”.
