About Bolan's Shoes

T-Rex’s Marc Bolan was an inspiration to many in the 1970’s before his untimely death. One of those people was teenager Penny, for whom her hero’s music helped her during difficult times in a children’s home. Bolan’s Shoes moves between reliving that period and the modern day when Penny decides to go on a pilgrimage to Bolan’s shrine in London, where a chance encounter with an old acquaintance brings back painful memories. Featuring a remarkable performance from a long-haired Timothy Spall, this glittering celebration of 70’s culture is both nostalgic and disturbing in its exploration of childhood trauma and the life-affirming power of music.
