Quadrophenia

MUSIC IN MOVIES
Great music stories on screen, with special guests in conversation with Jane Gazzo.

Melbourne rock royalty Davey Lane (You Am I/The Pictures) talks all things The Who before a screening of the British cult classic based losely on The Who's rock opera.

The Who’s 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, directed by Franc Roddam. Jimmy (Phil Daniels), an angst-ridden youth, is dissatisfied with family, work, and love, spending his time knocking around with fellow Mods, a group whose antipathy for their rivals - the motorcycle-riding Rockers - leads to a climactic riot in Brighton. A heady chronicle of youthful rebellion and turmoil, with Pete Townshend’s brilliant songs (including “I’ve Had Enough,” “5:15,” and “Love Reign O’er Me”) providing emotional support, and featuring Sting and Ray Winstone in early roles.

This screening was originally scheduled for June 16 but was moved by the Melbourne Lockdown.
