Quadrophenia (40th Anniversary)

Director: Franc Roddam
Starring: Philip Davis, Phil Daniels, Leslie Ash
Duration: 120 min

Acclaimed at the time of its release forty years ago as the most exciting, stirring and perceptive youth film since REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, QUADROPHENIA was the sensational feature debut from Franc Roddam, a successful TV director who has gone on to create AUF WIEDERSEHN PET and MASTERCHEF.

Like TOMMY before it, the film was based on a concept album by ‘The Who’ and became an instant cult classic both in the UK and in America, influencing an entire generation of filmmakers. Deliberately naturalistic, the film centres on a remarkable recreation of the world of the Mods and Rockers in the mid ’60s, brilliantly capturing the essence of the era and starkly portraying the notorious pitched battles on the Brighton seafront.
