In the film that introduced reggae music to a wider audience, Jimmy Cliff stars as Ivan, a young man with dreams of becoming a singing star in Jamaica. When he is hoodwinked by a corrupt record producer he goes full gangster. Full of vibrant Jamaican music and culture. Cliff’s onscreen performance of the title track is one of the great movie moments ever.
