24 Hour Party People (FAC-401) is a 2002 British comedy-drama film about Manchester's popular music community from 1976 to 1992, and specifically about Factory Records. It was written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and directed by Michael Winterbottom. The film was entered into the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. It received positive reviews.

It begins with the punk rock era of the late 1970s and moves through the 1980s into the "Madchester" scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The main character is Tony Wilson (played by Steve Coogan), a news reporter for Granada Television and the head of Factory Records. The narrative largely follows his career, while also covering the major Factory artists, especially Joy Division and New Order, A Certain Ratio, The Durutti Column and Happy Mondays.

The film is a dramatisation based on a combination of real events, rumours, urban legends, and the imaginings of the scriptwriter – as the film makes clear. In one scene, one-time Buzzcocks member Howard Devoto (played by Martin Hancock) is shown having sex with Wilson's first wife in the toilets of a club; the real Devoto, an extra in the scene, turns to the camera and says, "I definitely don't remember this happening". The fourth wall is frequently broken, with Wilson (who also acts as the narrator) frequently commenting on events directly to camera as they occur, at one point declaring that he is "being postmodern, before it's fashionable". The actors are often intercut with real contemporary concert footage, including the Sex Pistols gig at the Lesser Free Trade Hall.

Synopsis

In 1976, television presenter Tony Wilson sees the Sex Pistols perform at the Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall for the first time. Inspired, Wilson starts a weekly series of punk rock shows at a Manchester club, where the newly formed Joy Division perform, led by the erratic, brooding Ian Curtis.

In an attempt to impress his American girlfriend, Mischa, actor Steve Coogan accepts a commission from the Sunday newspaper, The Observer, to undertake a tour of leading restaurants in the north of England for a column in their monthly food magazine. However, when Mischa, who was expected to accompany Coogan on the tour, insists that they take a break from their relationship and returns to America, Coogan is obliged to search for another companion. After finding that other friends are "busy", he decides with feelings of some ambivalence to invite his former colleague, Rob Brydon, with whom he shares an uneasily competitive relationship. In the course of the trip, they eat a series of gourmet meals and visit sites linked to the Romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth, Coogan has casual sex with a couple of women working at their hotels, and the two men indulge in various forms of one-upmanship, including exchanging impersonations of famous actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Sean Connery, Woody Allen and most notably Michael Caine. At the end of the trip, Brydon returns to a nondescript suburban home and his evidently loving wife and child, while Coogan comes back to a glamorous but lonely riverside apartment: the closing shots show him staring broodingly out of the window. In the end he calls back his agent to reject a deal for the lead role in a US drama to remain close with his family.
