Malcolm Kennard plays the antagonistic Danny, a tough-talking, tightrope-walking greaser with a black leather jacket, stovepipe jeans, pointy boots, an impressive pompadour and a sneer on his face that made me melt. The other dags are there to swoon over the Beatles, but Danny came for Rock and Roll. His and Emily's characters are the most interesting. The others are superfluous, even a little annoying. It's a pity to see Noah Taylor's acting talents wasted on a silly role like Randolph.
