Rating:
R
Can a pair of handcuffs turn two enemies into lovers? Adam (Luke Treadaway) is the lead singer of successful retro-pop group the Make, who are booked to headline a high-profile music festival in Scotland. He arrives at the festival with his keyboard player Tyko (Mathew Baynton) and socialite girlfriend Lake (Ruta Gedmintas), but while trying to track down his manager, he happens upon Morello (Natalia Tena), the frontwoman for the all-female punk band the Dirty Pinks. Morello doesn't think much of Adam and his music, and the feeling is mutual on his part; the two are soon engaged in a fierce argument that attracts the attention of a renegade preacher attending the festival. To teach them a lesson about cooperation and compromise, the preacher handcuffs them together and then throws away the key. Stuck with one another until they can find a locksmith, Adam and Morello are not happy at first with this arrangement -- especially since it means performing together on-stage -- but as the day wears on, the two musicians find they have more in common than they thought, and Morello begins to wonder if she's really happy with her boyfriend Mark (Alastair Mackenzie). You Instead was shot on location at Scotland's annual T in the Park music festival, with most of the scenes filmed while the event was taking place.moreless

    The pair muster some chemistry but it's the big musical moments - including a gusto-packed Soft Cell riff - that impress most. Sadly, the pair's romance is predictable and the plot...
