Storyline

Two girls travel to Torquay in Devon from the North of England to work as chamber maids for the summer. They meet two boys, also in Torquay for the summer, one of whom (winstone) is entered in the "round the bay" swimming race. They have a run in with a gang of Scottish lads, one of whom (morrison) is also entered into the swimming race. Various confrontations ensue with Morrison and his friends framing Winstone for a robbery in a chemists shop. Winstone is arrested just as he is about to start the race. He escapes from the police and follows Morrison into the water, catches him up, forces him to confess to framing him and then goes on to win the race. Written by Chris Duddle

Haven't seen the movie (no one has)....
13 December 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

... but the soundtrack ROCKS! Basically a snap shot of the best of British and American power pop and poppy punk, circa 1978: the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks," Patti Smith's "Before the Night," Elvis Costello's "Chelsea," Richard Hell and the Voidoids' "Blank Generation," the Boomtown Rats' "She's So Modern" and "Kicks," Wreckless Eric's "Whole Wide World," the Only Ones' "Another Girl, Another Planet," Zones' "New Life," the Ramones' "Rockaway Beach"....it's perfectly sequenced and keeps up from start to finish.

Unfortunately, the album's long out of print and the movie just isn't available on VHS or DVD anywhere as far as I can tell.
