Phil Daniels, and the movie, Quadrophenia are British institutions Every kid growing up in the 80's watched Quadrophenia. Phil Daniels was the cheeky star of that film and also later on in life did a bit of a double act with the Britpop group, Blur (the video which I've linked below).

Phil is the cheeky cockney monkey speaking the lyrics

We watched all of those too, but we had some of our own home-grown British films that were more...in-tune shall I say, with the youth.

I would put these films on the list as highly influential during the 80's (some were made before that decade though)

Quadrophenia
Tommy
Scum
Made In Britain
My Beautiful Laundrette
A Clockwork Orange
A Letter to Brezhnev
Kes
Educating Rita

Out of them all I'd say watch Kes first. Kes is possibly Britain's "Old Yeller". It's about a working class boy who finds an injured Kestrel (Kes) and rears it up by himself. In the process he finds that there's something beyond the bleakness of his surroundings. I don't know many people from the North of England who didn't watch Kes and read the book it was taken from in school.

Kes is one of a couple of books that were favoured in a lot of Northern English schools when I grew up. The other was the little known "A Pair of Jesus Boots".

Here's a trailer (I've just found out Kes is from 1970! )
