Since I kept hearing some really good thing about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. First of all, it is thanks to this movie that Jeff Bridges' career really took off and it was just really neat to see him when he was much younger (and, apparently, already very talented) . Basically, it is one of those movies where nothing much really happen and nothing much is even told. I know, it ... read more

Description: In tiny Anarene, Texas, in the lull between World War Two and the Korean Conflict, Sonny and Duane are best friends. Enduring that awkward period of life between boyhood and manhood, the two pass their time the best way they know how -- with the movie house, basketball, and girls. Jacey is Duane's steady, wanted by every boy in school, and she knows it. Her daddy is rich and her mom is good looking and loose. It's the general consensus that whoever wins Jacey's heart will be set for life. But Anarene is dying a quiet death as folks head for the big cities to make their livings and raise their kids. The boys are torn between a fu ... (more)

"Classic 70's drama about a small American town and the people who live there. Timothy Bottoms is the young man who, along with his fellow high school leavers are finding life tough, especially in a town that is slowly dying. Ben Johnson and Cloris Leachman both deservedly won Oscars for their performances, while a young Cybil Sheperd makes her debut. Slow-moving yet captivating and regarded as one of the finest films of the decade."
