American Graffiti may be the best film about teenagers ever made, an influential coming-of-age film and nominee for an Academy Award for Best Picture. It is a funny, nostalgic, and bittersweet look at a group of high school grads’ last days of innocence. Set in Modesto, California, at the end of summer in 1962, the film is a study of the cruising and early rock ‘n’ roll cultures. Through a series of vignettes, the film tells the story of a group of teenagers and their adventures over the course of a night before heading east for college the next morning. This music-filled movie still holds up nearly a half century later for its impressionistic soundtrack which includes no fewer than 41 pop singles, virtually all of them performed by a band at a school dance or blasted out of car radios. American Graffiti is pretty much terrific all around.

Stars: Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Paul Le Mat, Harrison Ford, Charles Martin Smith, Cindy Williams, Candy Clark, MacKenzie Phillips, Bo Hopkins, and Wolfman Jack.
