Fast Times at Ridgemont High

IFC | 6:00 pm

"What are you, people? On DOPE?" Amy Heckerling ("Clueless") made her directing debut with this 1982 comedy set in a California high school. The plot, such as it is, involves a naive, likable guy and girl (Brian Backer, Jennifer Jason Leigh) who should get together but are getting the wrong kind of relationship advice from their respective friends (Robert Romanus, Phoebe Cates). But it's Sean Penn's surfer dude who steals every scene he's in.
