EXCLUSIVE: ‘Hunky Dory’ Clip

Our exclusive scene from the indie musical Hunky Dory shows an awkward conversation between the passionate drama teacher Viv (Minnie Driver) and the uptight Mrs. Valentine (Haydn Gwynne). Director Marc Evans' high school drama, set in 1976, centers on Viv, who is determined to create her school's best play ever, with a rock musical version of William Shakespeare's The Tempest. Watch as Mrs. Valentine expresses her concerns about the students' studies suffering from concentrating on this play so much. Hunky Dory opens in New York and Los Angeles on March 22nd, with a nationwide expansion following in the coming weeks.


Relive the summer of 1976 in this heartwarming British musical from the producer of Billy Elliot. Minnie Driver plays Viv, a fiery high school drama teacher determined to fire up her hormonal, apathetic students by putting on the best end-of-the-year show the school has ever seen... a glam rock-infused musical version of Shakespeare's The Tempest. But as the Welsh summer begins to heat up, can she compete with the typical teenage distractions of sex and drugs with some great rock and roll? Find out in this fantastic, rousing film- but remove all fears of the typical teen-pop covered high school musicals from your minds, as the songs in this film are from legendary artists like David Bowie, The Beach Boys, Electric Light Orchestra, and The Byrds.

Hunky Dory was released March 22nd, 2013.
