Breaking Away (1979, PG, 1h 41m)
Dave (Dennis Christopher) and his working-class friends Cyril (Daniel Stern), Moocher (Jackie Earle Haley), and Mike (Dennis Quaid) spend their post-high school days in Bloomington, Indiana, sparring with snooty students from the local university, chasing girls and – in Dave’s case – dreaming of competitive bicycle racing.
The four friends face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave’s dreams come true in the university’s annual bicycle endurance race.
