BREAKING GLASS:
COLLECTOR’S EDITION
Kate Crowley is an idealistic young musician who
performs angry songs that rail against a dehumanising 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.
