'Worried About the Boy' is a 90 minute film, featuring talented newcomer Douglas Booth, Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey), Marc Warren (Hustle) and Mark Gatiss, for BBC2's season of celebratory programming on the 1980s. At its heart it is a coming-of-age story about a 19 year old boy moving to London, establishing his personal independence, and becoming an influential part of a fashion cult.

In the past 30 odd years, George O'Dowd has made more than a few headlines. This film concentrates in particular the period between 1980 and 1982, just before the success of  Culture Club's "Do You Really" changed his life. Living in a squat on Great Titchfield Street, regularly attending the Blitz Club, falling in and out of love, being photographed for looking fabulous, forming a band... these are experiences that any 19 year old dreams of. George O'Dowd became famous all over the world simply by being himself.

The film is a compassionate biography of a much loved icon. Boy George's debut appearance on Top of the Pops was the defining televisual moment of 1982; it heralded in a new era of fashion and pop music. The film takes a wry look at Boy George's determination to stand out from the crowd - even a crowd as distinctive as the Blitz kids. His success was unprecedented - changing a whole generation's attitude to music and gender.

WORRIED ABOUT THE BOY is an affectionate look at a much-loved icon. The title is taken from a 1986 newspaper headline which broke during George's heavily-reported drug problem of the time - even through the bad times, the film shows how the public's affection for Boy George has remained.

This Limited Edition 2 disc set contains the full DVD plus the 19 track CD: Boy George & Culture Club's "At Worst: Best of"

Special Features:

Behind the scenes featuring Boy George plus interviews with Douglas Booth, Mathew Horne, Marc Warren, Mark Gatiss and director Julian Jarrold

worried about the boy

Total :


When Worried About The Boy was on BBC 2 a few years ago I very much liked it. It reminded me of the '80s because of the music, but for some reason that has been changed in the DVD. There's no David Bowie or Siouxsie and the Banshees in the background so the whole thing kind of loses its feel but it's still really good.
