Tonight You're MineFeature Film | David Mackenzie By Kristy Puchko
A spirited experiment of romance and rock n' roll.
Shot amidst the mud, music and mayhem of Scotland's T in the Park festival, Tonight You're Mine delivers the rom-com conventions of classic Hollywood with a rock n' roll bravado. Director David Mackenzie (Mister Foe) unfolds the romance of two unlikely lovers, Adam (Luke Treadaway), an indie rock star with a major ego and womanizing ways, and Morello (Natalia Tena), a smirking punk girl with a band busting to break through. They exist on opposite ends of the fame stratosphere, but are inescapably linked after a scuffle spurs a meddling security guard to handcuff them together, proclaiming, " If musicians can't get along, what hope do we got?" before vanishing amid a labyrinth of tents. Though the pair initially tugs at each other, as the day plays into night, they discover a deeper connection. Treadaway and Tena radiate sexual heat, and burn brightest when literally making beautiful music together. However, with a flimsy premise supported by a smattering of subplots of bandmates and hangers on looking for love, Tonight You're Mine is decidedly rough around the edges. But ultimately, the vibrancy and spontaneous energy of the concert setting that pervades the film forges not-to-be-missed moments of sheer bliss that perfectly capture the possibilities of wild nights of youth.
