Restored 35mm print Revived for its 40th anniversary—and the 50th anniversary of independence—THE HARDER THEY COME features some of the greatest Jamaican music ever made. Reggae superstar Jimmy Cliff plays a rural musician who journeys to the city to seek fame and fortune. Pushed to desperate acts by shady record producers and corrupt cops, he finally achieves notoriety—as a murderous outlaw.
