4.5 out of 10 Quadrophenia
Jennifer from Donegal, 29 Apr 2009
Set in the 1960s the film follows Jimmy a Mod and his gang and also his feelings of where he fits into this.He has money, sharp suits and a scooter but he hasn't got the girl he loves.Events in Brighton act as a catalyst for all his frustrations.Even the 'Face' isn't all he seems - to Jimmy it all seems to phoney and he questions his ideals.Good soundtrack to the film and all the actors are great-many going onto small recognition.Felt like a documentary
