Synopsis

Jeff Bridges and Cybill Shepherd came of age in Peter Bogdanovich's evocative adaptation of Larry McMurtry's tale of youthful frustration in small-town Texas. As the 1950s comes to an end, two teenage friends - Bridges and Timothy Bottoms - kick their heels, bicker about girls (namely, school tease Cybill Shepherd) and wait for adulthood to take them away from their dying hometown. A poignant, starkly beautiful and astonishingly early peak to Bogdanovich's career, with name-making performances from the three young leads and Oscar-winning support from Ben Johnson and Cloris Leachman. Indelible and quite exceptional.
