★★★★ – an iconic ode to fallen youth” – Empire.
Scooters vs Harleys! Trench coats vs leathers! It’s Mods vs Rockers in Franc Roddam’s classic Quadrophenia.
England, 1965 and Jimmy hates his job at an advertising firm but loves the rebellious Mod lifestyle – taking drugs, riding scooters and listening to music.
Then the infamous August bank holiday of ’65 happens, and the clash of two cultures causes chaos when the Mods and Rockers collide at Brighton Beach.
