Flick Pick: Breaking Away

Breaking Away
(20th Cent. Fox, 1979)

Great coming of age flick, as four Bloomington Indiana guys try to figure out a way through life post-high school. The parents of one lad are perfectly played by Paul Dooley and Barbara Barrie, a nearly adolescent Dennis Quaid appears in his first major role, plus Daniel Stern in his film debut. It's a great story, so good in fact that it won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
