Synopses
Quadrophenia (Criterion) (1979)
The Whos classic rock opera Quadrophenia was the basis for this invigorating coming-of-age movie and depiction of the defiant, drug-fueled mod subculture of early 1960s London. Our antihero is Jimmy (Phil Daniels), a teenager dissatisfied with family, work, and love. He spends his time knocking around with his clothes-obsessed, pill-popping, scooter-driving fellow mods, a group whose antipathy for the motorcycle-riding rockers leads to a climactic riot in Brighton. Director Franc Roddams rough-edged film is a quintessential chronicle of youthful rebellion and turmoil, with Pete Townshends brilliant songs (including Ive Had Enough, 5:15, and Love Reign Oer Me) providing emotional support, and featuring Sting and Ray Winstone in early roles.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION:
  • New, restored digital transfer of the uncut version, supervised by cinematographer Brian Tufano, with the original 2.0 stereo soundtrack as well as an all-new 5.1 surround mix, supervised by the Who and presented in DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray edition
  • New audio commentary featuring director Franc Roddam and Tufano
  • New interview with Bill Curbishley, the films coproducer and the Whos comanager
