Dougray Scott (the father) tells Shay that he has two FA Cup tickets for the match between Chelsea and Leyton Orient. Later on he tells Shay to look inside an envelope which he has left on the counter of his piano shop. Inside are two FA Cup tickets for a match between Arsenal and Leyton Orient. Bizarrely, on the top of the ticket is printed the word "Chelsea". See more »
Coming of age tale about a young boy who discovers the Clash via his estranged mother and a girl on a train.
From the opening minutes you can perceive a nice tale which frankly is pretty unbelievable from some wooden acting, a poor portrayal of Joe Strummer and a teen romance than frankly is a bit wishy washy.
The whole punk scene is frankly pretty badly portrayed, the Anti Nazi League concert is mixed with some footage from the Clash's own rude boy film, factually incorrect as far as timelines are concerned for the die hard Clash fan but frankly all a bit dull and predictable.
Is one one for the DVD bargain bin in months to come, shame as The Clash still stand up as one of Britain's best bands shoulder to shoulder with The Whos of this world and expected a little more in the Quadrophenia or Sid and Nancy mould, this more a twee film that a 14 year old would find sweet more than a tale of 1978 and punk rock.
