Watch Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Joe Strummer Singing 'Clash City Rockers'
Not a proper biopic, ‘London Town’ prominently features The Clash’s Joe Strummer as a character, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing a fictionalized take on the late punk pioneer.
London Town captures the sound and spirit of a scene that shook the world. When fifteen-year-old Shay (Daniel Huttlestone) hears the music of The Clash for the first time, it’s a revelation, opening up a new world of social consciousness and anti-establishment defiance beyond anything he’s known in his dead-end London suburb. Drawn into the heart of the city’s burgeoning punk scene, he forges two relationships that will change his life, falling in love with rebellious cool girl Vivian (Nell Williams) and finding an unexpected connection with none other than The Clash’s electrifying frontman, Joe Strummer (Jonathan Rhys Meyers).
