Synopsis:
Cliff Richard, the most successful British recording artist ever, stars in this gritty kitchen-sink drama. Set in London's Swinging Sixties, Cliff Richard plays Jamie Hopkins, an art student whose desperate need for money leads him to dabble in the underworld of drug dealing. Cliff has stated that 'Two a Penny', his most dramatically challenging movie role ever, is the film he is proudest of. He has stated, "if I did want to send a film as a CV, I would send that one".
It is certainly his most demanding and controversial role; cynical, self-centred and highly manipulative, Jamie Hopkins lies, steals and double-crosses his mother (Dora Bryan), forces himself on his girlfriend (Ann Holloway) and gets involved in fist fights with criminals. Through the influence of his girlfriend, a born again Christian, is the possibility that he may reform, yet in the mystery of the film's by-line "He promised to love her forever... today" lies the possibility that he may well not.
