(Amy Heckerling, US 1982, 90 min.)
Based on author Cameron Crowe’s undercover exploits at a Los Angeles high school, Fast Times broke the mold for the teen sex comedy genre by privileging human comedy over crude laughs. Jennifer Jason Leigh leads the cast as Stacy, a sexually inexperienced teen seeking guidance from best friend Phoebe Cates, while her brother Judge Reinhold navigates the world of fast food. Stoned surfer Sean Penn barely graduates, and Forest Whitaker rips up the football field.
