SYNOPSIS: Milos Forman's first American film got rave reviews back in 1971 from The New York Times, Newsday and New Yorker Magazine but today it's practically a "lost" film! This overlooked comedy / drama has strait-laced parents Buck Henry and Lynne Carlin trying to find their runaway teen daughter. In the process they get to experience some sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. A great time capsule of 70's life. Look for Ike & Tina Turner and a very young Kathy Bates as well! A must-see rarity. A fantastic looking WIDESCREEN print!
