Barry Levinson's feature debut as both writer and director is set in late-1950s Baltimore, where a group of young men, friends since high school, reunite for a wedding. As they hang out in their favourite diner, discussing their lives and relationships, it becomes clear that they're all having trouble growing up. Levinson's warm, semi-autobiographical tale crackles with witty dialogue, has a great period soundtrack, and features a host of stars in the making, including Steve Guttenberg, Kevin Bacon and Mickey Rourke.
This atmospheric look at life and the messy nature of being friends in a small, dusty Texas town at the start of the 1950s is a 70s classic.
