A screening of the director's cut of the 1988 River Phoenix coming-of-age film, with director William Richert in attendance!
River Phoenix stars as a recent high school graduate who is faced with the realities of life: get a job or go off to college. He instead hatches a plan to head off to Hawaii, but just needs to raise the money necessary for a plane ticket. This director's cut features footage never seen theatrically, a score by Elmer Bernstein, and narration by director William Richert.
