Big Wednesday

Don’t miss this classic 70s surf/coming-of-age movie on the big screen.

Image from Big Wednesday

USA 1978
Dir John Milius
With Jan-Michael Vincent, William Katt, Gary Busey, Patti D’Arbanville
Certificate PG

Milius’ partly autobiographical film about the fortunes of three surfing-fanatic friends – from the sun-kissed summer of 1962 to the chilly Great Swell of spring 74 – is a witty, bittersweet chronicle of the loss of innocence, with age, illness, war and changing fads all taking their toll. Strangely affecting, it’s an improbably personal, lyrical and epic variation on the coming-of-age movie.

The screening on Wednesday 2 August 18:10 will be introduced by Geoff Andrew, Programmer-at-large.
