Synopsis

A bittersweet comedy following several recently graduated high school students (including future stars Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard) for one last summer night of drag racing and picking up girls in 1962 small-town America. Expertly weaving the hits of the day into the action, director George Lucas brilliantly evokes the end of an era (partly based on his own rock and roll, hot-rodding youth) and the end of innocence for a pre-Vietnam generation. He would go on to direct Star Wars - but some people believe he's never again captured the warmth and humour of American Graffiti.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
