Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Amy Heckerling. U.S., 1982, 90 mins. 35mm. With Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, Nicolas Cage, Ray Walston. The smash directorial debut of Amy Heckerling (Clueless), Fast Times at Ridgemont High was based on a screenplay by Cameron Crowe, adapted from his book about going undercover as a student at Clairemont High School in San Diego. This coming-of-age comedy chronicles a school year during which an inexperienced teen (Leigh) seeks romance, and her stoner surfer friend (Penn) faces off against a strict teacher (Walston). Romantic, funny, and occasionally shocking, Fast Times is as honest, fresh, and funny today as it was 40 years ago. (Released August 13, 1982)
