"Bangs a gong for glam rock nostalgia but packs a devastating emotional punch." - Nick Howells, Evening Standard

"I was deeply moved by the effects a childhood tragedy had on our two leading characters, the themes of childhood bullying is something I could really relate to. The narrative has such heart and against the backdrop of a glam rock Liverpool, I knew it could be very cinematic and a joy to watch it unfold," Terri Dwyer, Co-Chief Executive Officer at Buffalo Dragon.

Buffalo Dragon, in association with Munro Film, are thrilled to announce new star-studded, multi-award winning feature film Bolan's Shoes will be coming to UK & Irish cinemas from 15th September. The film won the "Audience Award" at Manchester Film Festival 2023, as well as "Best Drama Feature", "Best Editing" at Jasper Poppy International Film Festival.

Bolan's Shoes is set in Liverpool and draws inspiration from the iconic 70s glam-rock band T.Rex, referencing their 1976 Manchester concert. The rest of the plot is fiction - from award-winning writer Ian Puleston-Davies (Silent Witness, Marcella). Puleston-Davies won the "Icon Award" at the Jasper Poppy International Film Festival.



Puleston-Davies also directed Bolan's Shoes and it was produced by Terri Dwyer (The Stranger in Our Bed) and Dean Fisher. The film boasts an impressive cast, of BAFTA-nominated actor Timothy Spall (Secrets and Lies, Harry Potter Franchise), Leanne Best (The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, A Town Called Malice), Mark Lewis Jones (The Crown, Gangs of London), and Mathew Horne (Gavin and Stacey, Bad Education).

Bolan's Shoes takes us on a tumultuous journey through the height of T. Rex mania in 1970s Liverpool. It captures the heady exhilaration of glam rock mania through the experiences of a group of over-excited kids from a local children's home before a devastating road accident changes their lives forever.



Years later, and still clinging to the adoration of her childhood idol, survivor Penny takes best friend and fellow Marc Bolan fan, Steffan, to visit his shrine in London, but a chance encounter there catapults her back to the horror she had tried so hard to forget. Light-hearted comedy and supernatural chills abound in this inspirational story that explores the enduring legacy of childhood trauma and the life-affirming power of music.

About Buffalo Dragon
Multi-award winning production company, Buffalo Dragon, was founded in June 2020 with a mission to raise funds and get into production within the year. This was achieved in the form of their first feature film, The Stranger in Our Bed, filmed in December 2020. The Stranger in Our Bed was awarded "Best Thriller" at the National Film Awards UK 2023. Richard Swingle won the "Gold Award" for Cinematographer at CS QLD Sate Awards 2023 (Brisbane, Australia). The film was was also nominated for Feature Film sub $2,000,000.

The writer of Bolan’s Shoes, Ian Puleston-Davies and Terri Dwyer have been friends for many years following acting together on Hollyoaks in the 1990s. Whilst walking their dogs together during covid lockdown they had a lightbulb moment where Ian shared that he had a developed script set locally and Terri, keen to get back into production, jumped at the chance to read and review the script! The beautiful, feel-good narrative of Bolan’s Shoes struck a chord with Terri, who, keen to be recognised as a new producer and production company thought this would be just the project!

Buffalo Dragon went into pre-production with Bolan’s Shoes in May 2021 and began filming at the end of June for a 21 day shoot.
