is a 1979 British film based on the 1973 rock opera album Quadrophenia by The Who.
The film, set in 1964, follows the story of Jimmy Cooper (Phil Daniels), a London Mod (a group of fashion obsessed working class youths who listen to american soul music, take amphetamines and ride Vespas).
The Mods' arch-enemies are the Rockers, who in turn wear black leather and ride motorcycles.
Disillussioned by his parents and a dead end job, Jimmy finds an outlet for his teenage angst with his Mod mates.
However, his distress and confusion are compounded by the fact that one of his Rocker rivals is in fact a childhood friend.
