About the Movie

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. 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 Roddam’s rough-edged film is a quintessential 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.

The Best Movie The Who has Released!

Overlooked Great

One of my personal favorites of all time. A great film showing the life of 1060's era Mods that gave life to the 1980's mod-revolution throughout the US and the UK and influencing greats such as The Jam, Secret Affair, and The Merton Parkas.

Also one of the greatest Who albums of all time. Great movie.


Quite mediocre flick. Great music, nice portrait of epoch and culture, interesting lead actor situated next to clumsy directing, horrible editing and poor cinematography.
Plus, the whole story is almost unmotivated nonsense. Sorry, it's just music of The Who over mods riding bikes, but not a Movie.
