"Set in the U.K. of 1978 and filmed as a fictional documentary, Rude Boy follows Ray as he quits his job in a London sex shop to become a roadie for the most exciting live band in the country, The Clash. Part character study, part "rockumentary," Rude Boy portrays the disillusionment of youth at a time of economic decline in late '70s Britain"--Container.

From Library Staff

Set as a mock documentary, this is honestly not the best film. But it is well worth watching for amazing footage of The Clash in their prime.
