It's the last day of school before summer vacation - 1976. It's been three years since Watergate, oil prices have hit an all time high and the sixties are well and truly over. Fortunately there are quick fixes for everything that bothers you at seventeen. Sex is still safe; drugs are not dangerous yet and booze is just having fun. And the music, well, the music just keeps getting higher and higher... Writer/director Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused is the story of Pink, Mitch, Jodie and their friends starting life after school with the coolest allnighter of all time.
