Plot Summary

From director George Lucas (Star Wars) and producer Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather), American Graffiti is a classic coming-of-age story set against the 1960s backdrop of hot rods, drive-ins and rock n’ roll. Starring Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Mackenzie Phillips and Suzanne Somers in their breakout roles, this nostalgic look back follows a group of teenagers as they cruise the streets on their last summer night before college. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, American Graffiti features the howling sounds of Wolfman Jack and an unforgettable soundtrack with songs by Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys and Bill Haley & His Comets.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It is a very good movie, funny, tough, unsentimental. – Roger Greenspun, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: There is brilliant interplaying and underplaying, of script, performers and direction which will raise howls of laughter from audiences, yet never descends on the screen to overdone mugging, pratfall and other heavy-handed devices normally employed. – A.D. Murphy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: American Graffiti acts almost as a milestone to show us how far (and in many cases how tragically) we have come. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: A brilliant work of popular art, it redefined nostalgia as a marketable commodity and established a new narrative style, with locale replacing plot, that has since been imitated to the point of ineffectiveness. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
