This classic rock opera, told through the remarkable music of The Who, is brought energetically to life by an outstanding cast of music and movie stars. When just a boy of six, Tommy witnesses the murder of his father by his mother (Ann-Margret) and her lover (Oliver Reed). They command him, “You didn't hear it, you didn't see it, and you won't say anything to anyone....” As a result, the traumatized boy retreats into the shadows of his mind and becomes deaf, dumb and blind. Growing into manhood, Tommy (The Who’s Roger Daltrey) is subjected to several bizarre cure attempts by the Acid Queen (Tina Turner), the Preacher (Eric Clapton) and the Specialist (Jack Nicholson). In spite of his handicap, Tommy challenges the Pinball Wizard (Elton John) and attains a devoted following. Directed by Ken Russell (Altered States, The Devils).
