Hunky Dory

It's the long hot British summer of 1976 and Viv (Minnie Driver) has left London, and her thespian aspirations, to work as a drama teacher in the local high school of her South Wales home town. Determined to fire up her hormonal, apathetic teenage charges, she sets about staging a rock musical based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest" for the school's end of year show. Battling the summer teenage distractions of love, lust and the local lido, Viv perseveres and rallies the rag-tag group to express themselves through music and drama.
