Member Picks showcases the movies that inspired the Moxie’s biggest supporters.
Every month, one member picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen. December’s pick was made by moxie members Andy and Alicia Campbell.
“I love this film because it’s my parent’s generation and I feel like I get to go back in time to catch a sneak peek of the high school version of them,” says Alicia. “We are Moxie members because it was my first favorite thing about Springfield…when we moved there from a big city.”
Free for members.
SYNOPSIS: A period ensemble piece about a group of Texas teenagers on the last day of high school and the night that follows in 1976.
"One of the most exciting movies of this, or any other, year. It's smart, funny, and wonderfully crafted and performed. "- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"From the opening shot of a burnt-orange GTO cruising a high school parking lot to the strains of Aerosmith's ''Sweet Emotion,'' Richard Linklater's film nails mid-'70s adolescence so precisely that you'll need Clearasil by the end credits."- Ty Burr, Entertainment Weekly
"Richard Linklater's satirical take on high school life in the 1970s is not only funny and entertaining. It's practically a historic document of life during the smiley-face button era. "- Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The surprise lies in Linklater's ability to breathe so much fresh life into a tired formula...This is a picture that recollects not merely a period in time but a state of mind. "- Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"The ultimate party movie -- loud, crude, socially irresponsible and totally irresistible."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The film's real inspiration, I think, is to depict some high school kids from the 1970s with such unblinking attention that we will realize how romanticized most movie teenagers are."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Once every decade or so, a movie captures the hormone-drenched, fashion- crazed, pop-song-driven rituals of American youth culture with such loving authenticity that it comes to seem a kind of anthem."- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
