Content Type: Movie
Kate Crowley is an idealistic young musician who performs angry songs that rail against a de-humanising world. Hustler Danny has ambitions for her, and almost overnight she is transformed into a huge star. Once at the top, however, the pressure ratchets up. Kate's trusted musicians are manoeuvred out of her band and she is left at the mercy of a ruthless and exploitative music industry. Before long, the social disintegration of the external world begins to mirror Kate's tragic descent into oblivion...
Hazel O'Connor gives the performance of a lifetime as Kate, who learns the hard way that fame comes with strings. Phil Daniels stars as the grasping manager who finds himself out of his depth, and Jon Finch plays the manipulative record producer who comes between him and Kate. Jonathan Pryce makes an early screen appearance as Kate's sensitive but drug-addicted saxophonist.
Released in 1980, Breaking Glass is the cult movie that helped to define the post-punk, pre-new wave era. The soundtrack features such classics as 'Will You?', 'Eighth Day', 'Give Me An Inch' and 'Writing On The Wall'. This collector's edition features the digitally remastered film in its original British version, uncut and in widescreen.
