U.S., 1971
Directed by Miloš Forman
Starring Lynn Carlin, Buck Henry, Georgia Engel
Approx. 82 min. 35mm.


In desperate search of their runaway daughter through East Village hippy enclaves, Buck Henry and Lyn Carlin resort to the ultimate - trying marijuana themselves! Forman’s first American film gives not only the middle class squares, but also those would-be radicals, a comic workout. “Wackier and more expansive than Forman’s previous films." – J. Hoberman

Reviews

“It remains his best film in and about America.”
– Village Voice

“An engaging, episodic, wonderfully fair-minded satire about
runaway children and anxious adults.”

– Dave Kehr
