London's Soho district, the 1950s: Harry (Owen Drake), a young and somewhat naive writer and philosopher, makes friends with James (Chris Wellington), a jack-of-all-trades, poet, artist, actor, womanizer, and through him gets sucked into the Soho lifestyle, meeting all sorts of people, like filmmakers Marcus (Angus Howard) and Jo (Emily Seale-Jones), who constantly argue about commercialism versus social relevance in their movies, actress Myra (Lauren Harris), wannabe communist Marty (Olly Warrington), who dates the origins of his fascination with communism to way before Marx, the mysterious Count (William Chubb), who acts as something of a father figure to Marcus, and Ironfoot Jack (Martin Calcroft), about whom nobody knows whether he's a bum or an intellectual. Other than in the rest of town (and the country), everybody here seems to set on revolution of one sort or another, be it artistic, societal or both, but nobody knows what the revolution ought to look like, and most of the Soho-ites are driven by blind ambition rather than actual accomplishment - and yet some beautiful art is made in Soho, while most of its inhabitants are poor enough to live only from one meal to the next. Harry eventually falls in love with Doreen (Caitlin Harris), a student without a clear vision who like him has an outsider view of the Soho-lifestyle. Harry also learns of Soho-itis, a sort-of "disease" of fatal over-indulgence in the Soho lifestyle nobody can really explain to him - until it hits too close to home ...


Based on Colin Wilson's 1961 book of the same name that was a first-hand account of Soho then and there, this movie is just a wonderful patchwork that really makes the era palpable through an ensemble piece that mixes made up characters with actual ideas from back when but that doesn't lean too hard towards one side or the other, instead shows empathy to all its characters, and that's filmed in a style more reminiscent of 1950s Free Cinema than anything else - and the film just looks and flows beautifully, and even without a clear storyline manages to suck the audience in throughout.
