The Who’s 1973 classic rock opera Quadrophenia was the basis for this invigorating coming-of-age tale and depiction of the defiant, drug-fueled mod subculture of early 1960s London. Angst-ridden London youth, Jimmy Cooper (Phil Daniels) loathes the drudgery of his postal job and his parents. He seeks solace as a member of the Mods, a sharply dressed scooter-riding gang, only to become more disillusioned.
OFFICIAL SELECTION – Toronto International Film Festival 1979
"Quadrophenia is every bit as fun, occasionally ugly, and upsetting as the heady days of discovering early independence and finding a direction in life can be. "
- Common Sense Media
"Manages to be both quintessentially British and irrefutably universal."
- Creative Loafing
"Quadrophenia is a glorious representational story of male teen angst that transcends its British locations and great music with a sense of the confused romantic notions that young men the world over carry with them. "
- Cole Smithey
