Larry Karaszewski on

Four Friends

Released 1981
Distributor Filmways Pictures

Arthur Penn’s episodic, determinedly non-Hollywood drama follows the fortunes of three boys and a girl from high school through college and beyond. Steve Tesich’s layered, semi-autobigraphical screenplay was shot on location Indiana, Illinois and Pennsylvania with a non-star cast. Praised on release as one of the most evocative portraits of the 1960s, it has fallen through the cracks and is pretty much unknown today.
