The Punk and the Princess
Time Out saysAn adaptation of 14-year-old Gideon Sams' cult novel The Punk, made 15 years after publication by 53-year-old singer/sometime-director Mike Sarne (who also co-produced and wrote the screenplay). David (Creed-Miles), the disaffected son of an odious copper, wanders the streets of Notting Hill. One day he stumbles backstage during rehearsals for a fringe production of Romeo and Juliet. There he meets spoilt rich-girl Rachel (Hadaway), and amid the sniffing, spliffing, squalor and squats of West London, the star-cross'd lovers experience the usual coming-of-age problems. Very poor in all departments.
