Fresh out of high school in Bloomington, Indiana, Dave and his working-class best friends Cyril, Moocher, and Mike are desperate to cling to their youth. As the pressures of adulthood inch closer, the group begins to drift apart, with Dave having to decide between attending college and pursuing his aspirations of training with the professional bicycling team, Cinzano. This classic piece of American cinema from acclaimed director Peter Yates explores the dichotomy of pursuing one’s dreams versus following a traditional path, all with a mix of intelligence, humor, and suburban wit. Introduction by VAFF director Jody Kielbasa, discussion with actor Dennis Christopher, moderated by Elizabeth Flock (PBS NewsHour)
