For the first time, fans of dreamy ’80s UK indie pop can finally know the true story of Lawrence, the enigmatic bandleader of brilliant cult outfits Felt, Denim and Go-Kart Mozart. ‘At the start, the eponymous subject looks into the camera and asks: “Are you ready, Paul?” It’s a question never truly answered, as director Paul Kelly indeed may not have been ready to embark on a film which ended up taking eight years. But Kelly chooses not to focus on Lawrence’s ups and downs. Instead, he mounts a deeply personal investigation into what makes Lawrence tick. A funny, sad, insightful and refreshingly honest meditation on the mythology of rock and pop.’
