Quadrophenia

After his friends betray him, Jimmy (Phil Daniels) wrecks his scooter and heads by train back to Brighton, where he sees his hero, the Ace Face (Sting) working as a bellboy. Losing faith in his mod lifestyle, he steals the Ace Face's scooter and slings it off the cliffs into the ocean. (The film starts with what should be the final scene -- Jimmy looks out over the cliffs.)

Thanks, Lance B!
