1980s London punk scene is captured in the gritty new wave musical with poignant rags to riches story of a talented and rebellious young singer-songwriter. Hazel O’Connor gives a tour-de-force performance as Kate, the lead singer of the rock group Breaking Glass. Kate’s socialist ideals are juxtaposed to her pragmatic rock manager, Danny (Phil Daniels), a streetwise hustler who discovers her and develops her into a star. The film pivots around the struggles for artistic recognition and energetic singer whose talent and sanity are jeopardized by the music business’ power structure. O’Connor wrote and performs 13 captivating and provocative songs for the film. The cast also includes Jon Finch and future star Jonathan Pryce as the band’s junkie saxophone player.
