BREAKING AWAY

USA | 1979 | 101 minutes | PG


Dave (Dennis Christopher) and his working-class friends Cyril (Daniel Stern), Moocher (Jackie Earle Haley) and Mike (Dennis Quaid) spend their post-high school days in Bloomington, Indiana, sparring with snooty students from the local university, chasing girls and–in Dave’s case–dreaming of competitive bicycle racing. The four friends face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave’s dreams come true in the university’s annual bicycle endurance race.


Director: Peter Yates
Cast: Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley, Dennis Christopher, Paul Dooley


DETAILS

A hangout movie that turns into a desire to better yourself. You get to have the chill vibes and the chaotic comedy of Dazed and Confused, in a film actually made in the 70s, but with the need for speed, the want to win, and the energy to see what you’re made of. A film about pride, friendship and drive. Breaking Away is a special picture, simple on the surface and elegantly told. The Oscar-winning script (Peter Tesich) is not talked about enough. Though it’s told from a specific place, through the lives of these specific young men, any one of us has felt lost and dejected, yet desperate to find our way. Breaking Away taps into all of those underdog themes, and asks: what if, against all odds, you chose to bet on yourself and have one last great summer while doing it? (VANYA GARRAWAY)
