With Quadrophenia set for a DVD reissue on DVD next month over 25 after it hit the big screen, it’s interesting to see that film directors still have a fascination with Mods and the Mod scene.
I’ve been forwarded a trailer for a new US movie under the title of Young Birds Fly, which is nearing the end of filming, with a view to a cinema release towards the end of this year.
I’m a bit confused about the plot, but it seems to involve two 15-year-old wannabe Mods and a 32-year-old "former face" – and what happens when they come together. You might get a better idea from the trailer below. And if you want to know more, check out the film’s MySpace site.
