George Lucas is a master at building worlds. The one that comes to mind is far, far away but four years before Tatooine, Lucas built a planet of a different sort. It was full of deadly moving vehicles, sweeping music, and young men struggling to find their way. If that sounds like Star Wars, that’s because it is; American Graffiti is an American classic. It also contains the blueprint for the themes and characters that would pervade Lucas’ famous space trilogy.

American Graffiti is a coming-of-age story where time and place play leading roles. Set in his hometown of Modesto, California, 1962, the film is a vivid recreation a lost time in the director’s life. It’s a time when Cokes cost ten cents, boys had cooties and the main event on a Friday night was a sock hop. High school grads Curt, Steve, John and Terry are on the brink of adulthood. »
