Director Julien Temple's (Earth Girls are Easy, Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan) "daring, terrifically inventive" (Variety) rock musical takes an exhilarating look at London in the late 1950s when young people shattered convention with their newfound power. With appearances by some of music's biggest stars including David Bowie (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Labyrinth, The Prestige), Sade Adu (A Wrinkle in Time, True Lies) and Ray Davies (Avengers: Endgame), Absolute Beginners "breathes the soul and spirit of adolescence" (Los Angeles Times) into a time when anything, and everything, happened!Colin (Eddie O'Connell, Sexy Beast) is a brazen 19-year-old with his finger on the pulse of Soho's burgeoning arts scene. But when his beautiful girlfriend Suzette (Patsy Kensit, Lethal Weapon 2, Hanover Street) tires of their poor and struggling existence, Colin is left grappling with his own identity. And when an older, richer man sweeps Suzette away, a devastated Colin embarks on a desperate journey to win her back!
