Filled with the assurance and detail that clearly comes from an intimate knowledge of raves, Groove
is a finely tuned and realistically constructed film that takes apart an evening from A to Z without
uncalled-for contrivances or melodramatics.
David Turner, a somewhat geeky and struggling writer, is invited by his hip artist brother, Colin, to
join him as he prepares a big surprise for his raver-sprite girlfriend, Harmony. Swept into the
revelry, David embarks on a night that changes his life.
With a taken-for-granted attitude to sex, drugs, and police harassment and a sophisticated,
exhilarating musical milieu, it offers a very nongeneric look at the lives of a generation that has
rarely been this honestly profiled.
