Fast Times At Ridgemont HighDECEMBER 9 – FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH – Amy Heckerling, 1982, USA

Written by Cameron Crowe (Say Anything, Almost Famous), Fast Times follows the lives of six high schoolers and their adventures in the worlds of school, work, parties, and love. Stacy, Linda, Mark, and Mike try to not crack under the pressures of young love; stoner Jeff Spicoli goes to war with an especially strict history teacher; and Brad Hamilton tries to keep a job to pay off his car. Known for launching the careers of many young actors, including Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, and Nicolas Cage, Fast Times at Ridgemont High has gained iconic status as an hilariously honest representation of high school life in the 1980s. 90 minutes.
