From the box:
It was the last day of school in 1976. A time they’d never forget… if only they could remember!
It was bongs and bell bottoms, polyester and puka shells, macrame and mood rings. We rocked and rolled, we were jaded and innocent, but most of all we were Dazed and Confused.
With hilarious and touching honesty, this critically acclaimed comedy from writer/director Richard Linklater explores the last day of school — and one rowdy night — in the lives of a group of high school students in late May, 1976. Everybody’s along for the ride: the jocks, the jerks, the stoners, the cheerleaders, the “in-crowd,” even a long-since graduated high school-wannabe. And at a wild and crazy midnight beer bash, friendships will be made and lost, futures pondered, romances kindled, and the freshman — having endured a nasty hazing at the hands of the incoming seniors — will plot their revenge!
Accompanied by the music of Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Foghat and more, a superb ensemble cast delivers “the most slyly funny and dead-on portrait of American teenage life ever made.” (Entertainment Weekly)
