Franc Roddam's classic 1979 coming-of-age drama is getting the Blu-ray treatment at the end of August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion is preparing 'Quadrophenia' for Blu-ray on August 28.
The Who’s classic rock opera Quadrophenia was the basis for this invigorating coming-of-age movie and depiction of the defiant, drug-fueled London of the early 1960s.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and 2.0 soundtracks, and supplements include: New audio commentary featuring director Franc Roddam and director of photography Brian Tufano; New interview with Bill Curbishley, the film's co-producer and the Who's co-manager; New interview with the Who's sound engineer, Bob Pridden, discussing the new mix, featuring a restoration demonstration; On-set and archival footage; Behind-the-scenes photographs; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Nick James, a reprinted personal history by original mod Irish Jack, and Pete Townshend's liner notes from the album.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
