Quadrophenia, a cult movie of the English Mods and scooter scene is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary in 2019 and will be screening at Elinor.
ARE YOU A MOD OR A ROCKER?
Quadrophenia is a 1979 British drama film, loosely based on The Who's 1973 rock opera of the same name. Unlike the adaptation of Tommy, Quadrophenia is not a musical film, and the band does not appear live in the film. The film stars Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London-based Mod who escapes from his dead-end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his Vespa scooter, and brawling with the motorcycle-riding Rockers.
After he and his friends participate in a huge brawl with the Rockers at the seaside town of Brighton, he is arrested and his life starts to spiral out of control; he loses his girlfriend (Leslie Ash) and discovers that his idol, the popular mod nicknamed "Ace Face" (Sting) is actually a bell boy at a hotel.
