ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS (1986) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Steven Berkoff, James Fox, Patsy Kensit, Eddie O'Connell, David Bowie, Ray Davies, Anita Morris
Directed By:  Julien Temple
Composed By:  Various

“An inventive, slangy, poetic celebration of youth and jazz and London…The film has a glossy immediacy, and you can feel the flash and determination that went into it.” – Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“Absolute Beginners is a movie about style…it has endless flair with no self-importance…high pop culture.” – Caryn James, The New York Times

“A terrifically inventive musical for the screen. Daring attempt to portray the birth of teenagedom in London 1958, almost exclusively through song.” – Variety

Director Julien Temple’s free-form rock musical adaptation of Colin MacInnes’ cult-fave book about life in late-1950s London, Absolute Beginners (1986) offers music and performance by the likes of David Bowie, Sade, Ray Davies, The Style Council and Gil Evans. Focusing on the British music scene on the cusp of the 1960s, the film features a breakout performance from Patsy Kensit and a fabulously stylized visual élan.
