Well received in its native land, where it earned five major film awards, Big Beat tells a story of budding youthful rebellion in a working-class Prague neighborhood in 1959. Baby (Jakub Špalek), a guitar-strumming rocker with a wardrobe of a cost-conscious rockabilly star, takes a job as a live-in companion to a dour policeman’s senile mother. Before long, however, Baby is spending more time with the cop’s teenage son and other rebels without causes in the neighborhood.
