Manufacturer Description

Breaking Away (1979) is an utterly endearing coming-of-age story about a quartet of recent high school graduates-working-class "townie" kids in the university town of Bloomington, Indiana-trying to sort out their possibilities. Played, superlatively, by Dennis Christopher, Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, and Jackie Earle Haley, this is a group coming to terms with their own outsider status and realizing that they won't be able to depend on each other forever. Director Peter Yates (in a surprising departure from the likes of Bullitt) gives us a lovely, sunlit interpretation of Steve Tesich's Oscar®-winning screenplay, which zeroes in on Dave (Christopher), his eternally exasperated father (the marvelous Paul Dooley), and his understanding mother (Barbara Barrie in divine form); the result is a film that presents us with the Middle America of all our dreams. Twilight Time presents for the first time on Blu-ray the classic film, in 1080P High Definition and includes commentary and the original theatrical trailer
