Hunky Dory is a British independent musical film about the trials of an idealistic drama teacher as she tries to put on the end of year show. It was written by Laurence Coriat and directed by Welsh director Marc Evans and stars Minnie Driver, Aneurin Barnard, Kimberley Nixon and Robert Pugh.[2] It premièred at the 55th BFI London Film Festival on 25 October 2011,[3] and was officially released on 2 March 2012 in the UK.

Plot[edit]

Set in a Welsh comprehensive school during the long hot summer of 1976, keen drama teacher Vivienne (Minnie Driver) fights sweltering heat and general teenage apathy to put on an end of year rock and roll musical version of Shakespeare's The Tempest, that David Bowie would be proud of.[4] To engage her students, she uses hits of the time, performed by a fresh young cast led by Davey (Aneurin Barnard).[5]
