the stone roses made of stone1 Trailer Revealed For Shane Meadows’ ‘The Stone Roses: Made of Stone’

Picturehouse Cinemas has unveiled this UK trailer for Shane Meadows’ (This Is England, Dead Man’s Shoes) upcoming The Stone Roses documentary, ‘The Stone Roses: Made of Stone.’ Incorporating previously unseen material spanning The Stone Roses’ history, the personal experiences of many who were touched by the band and their music, and unparalleled access to the record-breaking sellout concerts which took place in summer 2012, ‘The Stone Roses: Made of Stone’ is described as the definitive record of the definitive band of the past 25 years.

“This film isn’t a history lesson”, explains Shane Meadows, “nor is it a two hour concert film. It is a film about defying the odds, sticking it to the man and telling the cynics to shut their pie-holes!” ‘The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone’ gets a UK Premiere in Manchester, complete with an appearances from The Stone Roses themselves, on May 30th, before rolling out nationwide on June 5th.  I’m looking forward to this!

In 2012 a resurrection no one thought possible took place when legendary band The Stone Roses reformed after 16 years. With unprecedented access to archive footage, Made of Stone is a revealing journey through the life of one of the most revered and influential bands in British music history. Acclaimed filmmaker Shane Meadows brings his unique directorial style, humour and emotional depth to the film, capturing the band at work and in their everyday lives as they rehearsed for their much-anticipated reunion, which culminated in three triumphant homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park in front of 220,000 adoring fans.
