Fun, well-done film about college life in the 1960s, a volatile time. The U.S. still had the draft, so that was one concern. Jameson Parker was probably best known for his role on Simon and Simon. (had some wacky adventures in his personal life.... check it out on wikipedia!) Co-stars Brad Davis (played gay roles before it was common to do so. sadly, Davis died quite young in real life.) and Karen Allen (Indiana Jones and Animal House) are students, who all get to be close friends. Also a thirty year old Shelley Long. War protesting, antics, and love affairs along the way. Good, for the most part. sometimes overly-dramatic and preachy, but good stuff. the short, symbolic scenes really catch the various sentiments of the time. the anger over the vietnam war, and the roles played by presidents johnson and nixon. and some very pretty piano music. Directed by Rob Cohen. made an interesting mix of adventure films and television series. Written by Ezra Sacks, who had only written two other things made into film.
