*1/2. I'm sure you can call it a feel good movie if you're sixteen or so but the fact stays that 'You Instead' is pathetically bad. Already forgotten and I think I will offer the DVD to my sister-in-law next Christmas.
Manages to capture that heady sensory overload that comes with being slightly tipsy at a cold, muddy festival with fantastic music. Yes, premise is more than a little cloying and you know exactly how it will end, but there's just so much to enjoy and take in as you get there.
this film was a lot of fun! i wasn't expecting much but for something that was shot guerilla style during the actual t in the park festival, the cinematography, editing and improv approach to acting was admirable. and luke treadaway has a very nice face.
For a better music-based mockumentary co-starring Luke Treadaway, try Brothers of the Head. Otherwise if you're simply feeling nostalgic for 1990s style MTV or want a taste of the music fest experience without the smells, ticket prices, gonorrhea, and alcohol poisoning, this will do.
