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.
