Product description

Product Description

A friend's suicide reunites a group of 60s college friends who have gone separate ways in the 80s. The once rebellious group of friends find that they have settled into 80's lifestyles; the political activist is now a Hollywood macho-man; the radical lawyer now works in commercial law; the left-wing reporter now works for People magazine. Lawrence Kasdan's hit film nearly featured Kevin Costner, who played the dead friend in flashbacks which were cut out of the final version. The soundtrack is classic Motown.

From Amazon.co.uk

This seminal film about the reunion of thirtysomething friends works even better than when first released in 1983. The fine performances of the ensemble cast and a rockin' soundtrack always made this eminently enjoyable. However, the characters' often pompous blather occasionally stalled the action. Baby Boomer introspection has become so common that such navel gazing seems less problematic than it did in the early 1980s.

Seven former classmates from the University of Michigan gather for the funeral of Alex, their idealistic and suicidal friend. They use their time together to become reacquainted, all the while discussing lost dreams and current hopes. (This should appeal to anyone who enjoyed that other famous reunion flick of the 1980s, John Sayles' Return of the Secaucus Seven.)

Director-cowriter Lawrence Kasdan culled finely textured performances from his cast and filled the screen with memorable details. He may manipulate us with his writing but the actors do an impressive job of pulling at our heartstrings while Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye play in the background. --Rochelle O'Gorman
