The seminal British post-punk scene provides the backdrop of this showbiz saga of rocking out vs. selling out. Frizz-haired New Waver Kate (O’Connor)—clad variously in Kabuki makeup and luminescent robot suit—faces that age-old conundrum: go mainstream, or stay true to her anti-establishment roots? This blistering transmission from late-70s England captures the era’s nonconformist spirit, outré fashion, and simmering political tension.
