Set against a backdrop of the flamboyant fashion and pop music scene of the early 80's, Worried About the Boy, released on DVD from 12th July 2010 courtesy of Universal Playback, tells the story of a young Boy George and his journey from cloakroom attendant to international cultural icon. Sweet Dreams are definitely made of this...

With a passion for fashion, make-up and music, George O'Dowd realised he was not like other boys his age. Vowing never to Fade to Grey, George soon fled his suburban home of Eltham to become a fixture at the infamous Blitz Club, the favourite haunt of all those at the forefront of the New Romantic movement. Definitely not Too Shy to dress up, make up and party, George and a small group of like-minded fashionistas lit up a grey world with their outlandish and exotic dress sense.

Written by Tony Basgallop (Hotel Babylon, Hughie Green, Most Sincerely) and directed by Julian Jarrold (Red Riding, Brideshead Revisited), Worried About the Boy explores George's life before he became one of the most recognised faces of the decade - from falling in love for the first time, to embracing his unique style, to meeting his Culture Club bandmates.

Talented newcomer Douglas Booth stars as George, Mathew Horne (Gavin and Stacey, The Catherine Tate Show) is Culture Club drummer and George's former lover Jon Moss, Marc Warren (Hustle, Mutual Friends) plays nightclub pioneer and Visage front-man, Steve Strange, Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Crooked House) is music impresario Malcolm McLaren and Freddie Fox (St Trinian's II) plays 80's pop-star Marilyn.

Boy George has been a cultural icon for three decades and still has the capacity to make front page news, and Worried About the Boy is quite simply a must-own DVD for anyone who loves the 80's.
