Talkin’ Bout My Generation
London, 1965. Jimmy is stuck in a dead-end job working in his parents’ mailing division and hating what he describes as the ‘philistine’ lifestyle. This awkward, conflicted lad has no sense of direction, no aspirations or goals to reach, and seems to be stuck in limbo until someone offers him an out. It’s like being trapped in a prison, where freedom and acceptance do not exist. Kind of an Orwellian prospect, one may think. We have all been in Jimmy’s shoes as finding your true identity and adapting to surroundings can be a long and difficult process, and it is only when you flee the nest that you feel like you belong somewhere.
