Spandau Ballet — Soul Boys Of The Western World

Soul Boys of the Western World is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world's view of music and fashion.

At the heart of it all was Spandau Ballet, five friends who epitomised the early 80s London scene and became one of the decade's most iconic bands with the world at their feet. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained.
