About The Film

About The Story

 

Buddy is a young carer for his Mum who has multiple sclerosis. He struggles with his responsibilities at home and is bullied at school finding escape in a world of sixties music. He befriends an out of work actor, Doley, who was in the movie Quadrophenia.

A Nod To The MOD's
 

From original cast members and the Brighton location right down to the replicas of the scooters and clothing, Being has strong cultural references to the original Quadrophenia movie. Buddy and his mother Margaret share a love of sixties mod bands like The Who, The Kinks and The Animals.

Caring For Loved Ones

 

The core of the film is the struggle carers face when looking after family members. It raises the question, in a lighthearted way, why in this day and age, carers and those they care for are still marginalised and made to feel like outsiders.

Who's On Board?

 

Devlin Crow has secured a stellar line up of cast and crew, which includes Mark Wingett from the original Quadrophenia film as well as cinematographer Tristan Oliver (Grand Budapest Hotel, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Wrong Trousers) and composer Barrington Pheloung (Inspector Morse, Lewis) with an experienced film and television crew.

And we needed your help...and you helped us!

 

The script has been written and many people have pledged their commitment to this project because of Devlin's considerable charisma and his deep love for Kennedy, his wife who has MS. They do so in the knowledge that in Devlin's hands this will be a moving and compelling work of art that will change peoples' lives forever.
