YMMV: Quadrophenia

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: In the finale of the movie, Jimmy steals Ace Face's scooter, rides it along the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters (to I've Had Enough, no less), before throwing it off onto the rocks below, having come to terms with himself.
  • Faux Symbolism: Jimmy's relationship with drugs throughout the thing has elements of this.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Mainly for Sting and Ray Winstone in The Movie.
  • Values Resonance: Despite being written in '70s, the themes of teenage drug use, popularity, and self-identity are just as relevant today. About the only thing that has changed is the drugs in question, and even then not much.
