The release follows a cinema run in Picturehouse Cinemas’ Discover Tuesdays strand as well as high profile international festival appearances at Raindance (UK), Berlinale (Germany), Newport Beach (USA), Zlín (Czech Republic), Warsaw (Poland) and Emden/Norderney (Germany).

The Beat Beneath My Feet is a heartfelt comedy drama set in London, directed by John Williams in his first feature, and stars Luke Perry, Lisa Dillon and introduces newcomer Nicholas Galitzine.
Tom (Nicholas Galitzine) is a teenage loner with dreams of becoming a rock star, but he is thwarted by his God-fearing single mother, Mary (Lisa Dillon). His life takes a dramatic turn when an intimidating stranger moves into the flat below and plays loud rock music throughout the night. Tom recognises his new neighbour (Luke Perry) as Max Stone, an American guitarist who disappeared years earlier owing a fortune in unpaid tax and has been presumed dead. Tom agrees not to reveal Max to the authorities on condition that he teaches him the dark arts of rock guitar.
The Beat Beneath My Feet has a soundtrack of original music performed by Nick Galitzine and composed by Paul Cartledge, Geoff Jackson and Philip Jewson. The film also includes new music by Kristeen Young, produced by multi-Grammy winner Tony Visconti and featuring rock legend Dave Grohl, plus tracks from Bristol-based blues/rock guitarist John Fairhurst, Irish blues rockers The Strypes and upcoming indie bands Friday Club, Radio Radio and Jazz Blaack.
